An Arizona woman is facing charges after she allegedly crawled through a doggy door of a home and attacked two young girls, one whom stabbed her in the chest.

Police say 34-year-old Kristen Marie Anderson broke into a Happy Valley, Arizona, home early on Tuesday morning and came face to face with two young girls, ages 10 and 12, according to Fox News.

One of the girls was reportedly armed with a knife. Anderson picked her up and threw her on the couch, after which the girl stabbed Anderson in the chest. According to court documents, Anderson then proceeded to rub the blood on her face.

“Ah, blood,” she reportedly said.

The two girls ran out of the house and down the street with their two dogs and contacted their father via Facetime. The father then called the police.

The court documents also say police received a 911 call from a neighbor who said that a bloodied woman was in their back yard, knocking on the window and leaving blood on the glass.

Prior to the incident, neighbors saw Anderson walking down the street hitting walls and jumping fences. One woman’s husband tried talking to Anderson as she wandered around.

“He said, ‘Hey, how are you? How ya doing?'” the woman told Fox News. “She just turned and looked at him and had a blank stare on her face.”

Anderson was screaming “you can’t control me” when police encountered her down the street from the girls’ house. She was taken to John C. Lincoln hospital where she was treated for her stab wound and given a psychiatric evaluation.

At the hospital, Anderson would not cooperate with staff who tried to give her a CT scan. According to court documents, when one of the nurses tried to give her a sedative, Anderson kicked her with both legs in the stomach knocking the staffer several feet back.

Anderson faces several charges, including second-degree burglary, kidnapping, and aggravated assault. A Maricopa County Judge set her bail at $5,000 and required that she wear an electronic tracking device if she is released.
