Cpl. Melissa Franks says Sautuwaira Thomas drove his SUV into the front window of a home in the 100 block of Faircrest about 5 a.m. Tuesday.
No one was hurt in the collision, but Franks said Thomas then jumped out of the vehicle and attacked the woman who lived there with a knife.
She was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
“It’s a family-related issue,” said Franks, but police would not elaborate on the relationship between Thomas and the victim.
The investigation is still continuing, police said.
