Miami Police: Mother stabs teenage daughter in stomach during fight

An 18-year-old girl was in surgery Sunday afternoon after her mother stabbed her in the stomach and shoulder during a fight, Miami Police spokeswoman Kenia Fallat said.

The argument happened at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday inside a home at 20 NW 60th Ave.

Fallat said the mother, Odalys Rodriguez, 47, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest.

The teenager, who wasn’t identified, was taken to Ryder Trauma Center and was expected to recover from her stab wound.

"Luckily she is going to be able to walk away from this," Fallat said.
