A stabbing during an Anger Management Class leaves one person wounded and a 19-year-old Bellevue, Washington woman charged with second-degree assault.

According to Bellevue police, Faribah Maradiaga walked into a classroom this past Saturday and stabbed a classmate repeatedly in the arm in the middle of an anger management class. The class was taking place at Bellevue College outside of Seattle.

Yes, this happened at an anger management class! Here’s the breakdown from the police report:

Apparently, she walked into the classroom around 9 a.m. in the middle of the anger management video, started complaining about the movie and disrupting class. The police report says the victim told Maradiaga that “the video was good and to give it a chance.” The two women exchanged words. Police say that Maradiaga then “blew out of control,” pulled a knife with 3-inch blade on the woman, who was sitting 2 rows in-front of her and started to stab her arm and shoulder.

Maradiaga was in the class because she had a pending assault charge. Faribah tried to blame it on the other woman, saying that she started the fight first.

Maradiaga is being held on $50,000 bail in the King County Jail.

It sounds like this woman needs more than a couple of anger management videos, that’s for sure.
