RIVERVIEW, FL. - Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested a woman for stabbing a man at a McDonald's drive-thru.
On Wednesday around 9 a.m., deputies responded to the McDonald's located at 13118 Highway 301 South in Riverview in reference to a possible stabbing.
Deputies discovered that 45-year-old Rebecca Simmons had stabbed 35-year-old Mohammad Abukhder.
The incident started with a verbal altercation when Simmons attempted to cut in front of the victim in the McDonald's drive-thru, which upset Abukhder.

Abukhder then exited his vehicle, walked over to Simmons vehicle and attempted to remove her car keys so that she could not leave the scene.
Simmons followed Abukhder to her vehicle and stabbed him in the right buttocks, causing a small puncture wound that did not require medical attention.
Simmons was arrested at the scene and transported to Orient Road Jail. She is charged with Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon and Criminal Mischief with Property Damage.
