The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office charged a 50-year-old woman with Aggravated Assault and Aggravated Battery after she allegedly stabbed a Siesta Key hotel manager with a light fixture.

Deputies arrested Carmela Angela Benevento at the Siesta Key Bungalows just after noon yesterday, who witnesses say broke a landscaping light and stabbed 39-year-old Lisa Chavez-Barrera in the stomach. Benevento then allegedly brandished the crude weapon at bystanders, witnesses said.

Chavez-Barrera is currently being treated at Sarasota Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.
