Duke lacrosse accuser arrested again
By NBC17 Staff
Durham Police arrested Duke lacrosse accuser Crystal Mangum early Sunday morning.
Police were dispatched to a stabbing call at 3507 Century Oaks Drive around 3:15 a.m. Sunday. When they arrived, they found a 46-year-old man who had been stabbed in the torso. The victim was taken to Duke University Hospital for treatment.
Police said the stabbing occurred during an argument between the victim and his girlfriend, Mangum.
Mangum, 32, has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. She is being held in the Durham County jail without bond.
Mangum is best known for accusing members of the Duke lacrosse team of rape in 2006. The players were later exonerated and charges were dropped against the players.
Mangum was convicted in December 2010 on five misdemeanor charges, including child abuse.
Durham Police would not release any other information about Sunday mornings incident.
