NORTH SMITH­FIELD – Two women were ar­rested and charged with do­mes­tic felony as­sault and other crimes Sun­day after they al­legedly broke into an apart­ment on Rail­road Street, where po­lice say they stabbed and pep­per-sprayed an ex-boyfriend who was stay­ing with a woman.

On Sun­day, pa­trol of­fi­cers re­sponded to 10 Rail­road St. for a re­port of an as­sault. Upon the of­fi­cers’ ar­rival, po­lice re­port­edly learned that the two women – Allyah Har­den of North Prov­i­dence and Tara Iade­vaia of John­ston – had gone to an apart­ment in the com­plex to con­front an ex-boyfriend and a woman he was stay­ing with. When the two women ar­rived, they al­legedly used a knife to pry open the lock on the build­ing door and went up to the apart­ment. Once there, po­lice said, the two women used a knife to carve marks in the door.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the ex-boyfriend of one of the fe­males opened the door and stepped out into the hall­way and it was then that the two women as­saulted him. Dur­ing the phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion, Har­den al­legedly stabbed the male vic­tim with a knife. Har­den and Iade­vaia also al­legedly used pep­per spray on the male vic­tim and two other fe­males that were with him. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Iade­vaia also had a BB gun which she used to in­tim­i­date the vic­tim and his friend.

After the al­ter­ca­tion, Har­den and Iade­vaia left the scene. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Har­den had a no con­tact or­der against her for her to stay away from the male vic­tim.

Har­den and Iade­vaia were lo­cated and taken into cus­tody. They were charged with two counts of do­mes­tic felony as­sault; car­ry­ing a dan­ger­ous weapon while com­mit­ting a crime of vi­o­lence; two counts of felony as­sault; break­ing and en­ter­ing; con­spir­acy; do­mes­tic dis­or­derly con­duct; vandalism; and vi­o­la­tion of a no con­tact or­der.

They were both ar­raigned in Third Dis­trict Court on Mon­day and will ap­pear back in court for a sta­tus con­fer­ence on Nov. 19.
