Entry Description

Gibson County – On May 2, at approximately 2:40 a.m., Indiana State Police, Oakland City Police and Gibson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 hang-up call at 509 Dongola in Oakland City. While officers were enroute, dispatchers received several more 911 calls and heard a female screaming. When officers arrived they found Sarah Bruce, 24, sitting on the couch with a bloody nose and a laceration to her neck. Samantha Robbins, 27, was also present and she had no visible injuries other than a small red mark on her neck. While officers escorted her outside she attempted to flee. She was quickly restrained and after a brief struggle she was handcuffed. While searching Robbins’ purse, officers found several Hydrocodone pills and a marijuana cigarette.

Further investigation revealed that an argument ensued between Bruce and Robbins. When Bruce called 911 and attempted to talk to the dispatcher, Robbins tried to take away the phone and threatened her with a knife by holding it to her throat. Bruce was able to get the knife away from Robbins and hid it next to the couch. The knife was recovered and blood was visible on the blade. Bruce was treated and released from Princeton General Hospital. Robbins was taken to the Gibson County Jail where she is currently being held without bond.
