Two Seventh Street women, related through marriage, were charged with first-degree assault after attacking a neighbor Wednesday afternoon, causing head and neck injuries that sent her to Erie County Medical Center.

Yareska Duprey-Diaz, 29, and Zuleyka M. Anaya-Duprey, 18, were arrested by Officers Richard Manley and Ibrahim H. Abdul-Wahed about 4:30 p.m. in the 400 block of Seventh Street.

After the officers responded to a 911 call about “neighbor trouble,” the victim said she had been attacked with a dark-handled knife that caused lacerations on her head and neck and was slapped, punched and kicked by the two women.
