A woman has been arrested for stabbing a man with a pair of scissors at the Empress Hotel in the Treme.

Police said Jaleesa Holland, 26, stabbed a 27-year-old victim in the hotel, which has been hit by armed robbers at least three times this year. The alleged attacker and victim had a verbal argument that escalated, police said, and Holland retrieved the scissors to stab the victim.

Holland has been booked on one count of aggravated battery.
