GREENWICH, Conn. -- A 25-year-old Port Chester, N.Y., woman is facing charges of attempting to stab a family member with a small kitchen knife during a dispute Tuesday morning at a Pemberwick residence, Greenwich police said.

Officers were called to the 17 Arther St. home shortly after 9 a.m. on a report that a woman had grabbed a knife and tried to stab another family member in the neck during a domestic dispute, police said.

Greenwich police didn't release the age or gender of the victim and said the dispute was over family issues.
