Woman accused of stabbing man on Baxter Street in Medina

MEDINA — A woman suspected of stabbing a man in the 500 block of Baxter Street was being held in the Medina County Jail on $150,000 bond Thursday.

Lisa Schrier, 41, of the 500 block of South Broadway Street, is charged with felonious assault, a second-degree felony.

Medina police Sgt. Ed Kinney said the 31-year-old man told police he was walking on the sidewalk when he was attacked shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday. He went to a nearby home on Baxter Street and asked the residents to call 911.

Officers arrested Schrier a block away on Prospect Street, a police report said.

Kinney said she admitted using a pocket-sized folding knife to stab the man in the back.

Police have not yet located the knife.

Kinney said the victim told police he “vaguely knew” Schrier, but the investigation is continuing.

The man was taken to Medina Hospital and transferred to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland. His condition was unavailable Thursday.
