RANDOLPH — A 48-year-old woman is accused of stabbing a man at a Randolph home and then kicking and spitting at deputies while claiming she had the coronavirus, according to a news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Lisa Lumbra, of Randolph, was charged with felony aggravated domestic assault, assault on law enforcement, and unlawful mischief after the incident on May 20.

Deputies from the sheriff’s department got a call about a stabbing just after 10 p.m. at a home at 10 Hale St., according to the news release. When they arrived, they found a 45-year-old Randolph man suffering a stab wound, and Lumbra brandishing a kitchen knife, the release said. Medical personnel treated the man for his wound while deputies took Lumbra into custody and brought her to the station.

Once there, Lumbra kicked and spit at officers and told them she had the coronavirus, the news release said. She also damaged furniture and office equipment at the station, according to police.

Lumbra was taken to Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield, Vt., where she was held without bail.

The 48-year-old woman previously pleaded not guilty in Orange Superior Court to a felony charge of aggravated domestic assault with a weapon in February, according to The White River Valley Herald.
