FARGO — A woman has been sentenced to 6½ years in prison for stabbing two women in a downtown Fargo parking lot, an attack that caused a standoff lasting several hours.
Ashley Ivy Larson, 31, of Fargo, was sentenced Monday (January 31) in Cass County District Court to four years in prison for each of the two aggravated assault charges to which she pleaded guilty in November. She will get 264 days credit for time served on each count, which means she only has to serve 6 and a half years at most.
The charges stem from a May 13 attack on two women in the parking lot of the Mexican Village restaurant at 814 Main Ave. Larson asked Sandra Miles and Sabra Low for a ride before she ran over and repeatedly stabbed Miles, court documents show.
Low and Miles fled, suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
Meanwhile, Larson barricaded herself in their vehicle, according to court documents. SWAT was called to the scene with armored vehicles and guns.
A naked Larson turned himself in to police after four hours.
Larson was also accused of stabbing John Townsend in his apartment at 9 ½ Ninth St. S., which is just west of the Mexican Village. An aggravated assault charge related to those allegations was dismissed because Townsend did not cooperate with investigators, prosecutors Ryan Younggren said.
