Molalla Stabbing, Chase Ends In Arrests 4-08-2010

A woman was arrested Thursday morning on charges she stabbed a 47-year-old man at a Molalla home, deputies said.
Clackamas County sheriff's deputies said Kelly Christensen and 22-year-old Tara Axmaker knew each other, but their exact relationship hasn't been revealed.
The stabbing happened at about 6:41 a.m. at the victim's home near the 12600 block of Wilderness Way. The Christensen's injury is considered minor, and he is in good condition at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland.
Axmaker was arrested at the Wilderness Way home on suspicion of second-degree assault.
The report of the stabbing also turned into an unrelated police chase.
While responding to the call, a deputy spotted a car speeding from the area of the crime, officials said. The deputy tried to stop 29-year-old Kenneth Manning -- who was driving Christensen's car -- but he ignored the deputy's demands to stop.
The chase continued for several minutes before Manning crashed the car near Short Fellows Road and fled on foot, deputies said.
Deputies arrested Manning without incident on suspicion of failing to appear for a charge of third-degree theft, probation violation and attempting to elude an officer.
Investigators said Manning was at the home during the stabbing and tried to help Christensen, but fled before authorities arrived because of the warrant for his arrest.
Axmaker and Manning are scheduled to appear in Clackamas County Court Friday.
