Admitted prostitute accidently stabbed herself, Lexington police say

Lexington police, responding to a report of a stabbing Saturday afternoon near Brentwood Court, found instead that their victim was an admitted prostitute who cut herself accidently while leaving the car of a potential john.

When police met up with the woman at the Brentwood post office she told officers that she and her potential client "were going to find some place to perform her business when she found out he didn't have any money, and they got into an argument," said Lt. Chris Van Brackel.

The woman, who has not been identified, took out a knife she carried for protection and demanded to be let out. And when she got out of the car on Brentwood Court in north Lexington, she cut her hand with the knife, Van Brackel said.

No charges were filed in the incident.
