TROY, Mich. – A 28-year-old woman is accused of attacking a human resources employee while resigning from a Troy company.
Officers were called to a business on West Big Beaver Road around 1:30 p.m. July 3 after reports of an employee being stabbed with a pen.
The human resources employee said Sakyra Keyona Ellis, 28, of Redford Township, was resigning from the company and turning in her equipment when she turned in a broken computer tablet.
When the HR employee told Ellis she had to pay $500 for the tablet to be fixed, Ellis got angry, officials said. She put the HR employee into a choke hold and stabbed her with a pen, according to authorities.
Ellis fled the office before police arrived, but her black 206 Nissan Altima was pulled over near I-75 and West 14 Mile Road. She was arrested and charged with assault and battery.
Ellis was arraigned Friday and is being held on $250 bail.
