Tatiana Flood accused of stabbing man at her house party in Port St. Lucie

PORT ST. LUCIE — An 18-year-old woman accused Sunday of stabbing a man — who a witness said had blood coming from his back "like a scene from 'Carrie'" — was arrested on a felony charge, according to an affidavit released Monday.

Tatiana Andrea Flood, of the 100 block of Northwest Magnolia Lakes Boulevard in Port St. Lucie, was arrested by Port St. Lucie police on an aggravated battery/person uses a deadly weapon charge after the incidents at her listed address.

Arriving officers found a man on the ground with apparent puncture wounds to his side and arm. He was flown to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Fort Pierce. His injuries were described as nonlife-threatening.

A witness told police that Flood invited more than 10 people for a house party. He said Flood had a large knife and was chasing after his friend, the victim. He said his friend fell and that Flood came down on him.

He didn't see Flood stab his friend, but said Flood went back in her home, and his friend said, "I was stabbed."

Blood, he said, was coming from his friend's back "like a scene from 'Carrie,'" the affidavit states. "Carrie" is a Stephen King book, and also a 1976 horror film of the same name.

Another person said Flood punched him and others at the party, and saw Flood holding a knife behind her back outside the home.

A third person said Flood came back inside with a kitchen knife, and said, "I stabbed him."

He said the knife's blade appeared to be bloody, and that Flood put the knife in the kitchen sink and washed it just before police arrived.

Flood said several males at the party were saying negative things about her, and at one point she showed the males two knives to get them to leave the party.

They left but returned. She got the "scariest and largest" knife she could from the kitchen to scare them. She said she ran after a man with the knife in the air.

The man fell backward, and she told police the knife had blood on it. Flood said the males punched her in the face, but police found no signs of injury.
