CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga.
Clayton County police have arrested a woman they say stabbed her daughter multiple times and then fled to Atlanta.
Police were called to 700 Gardenwalk BLVD around 6 a.m on July 23 for reports of a child stabbed at location. When the initial officer responded to the scene, they found a 3-year old girl stabbed multiple times. The girl's mother, Brittney Jackson, told the officers that two armed men had entered her apartment looking for the girl's father and then stabbed the child.
During the initial investigation, Detectives noticed Ms. Jackson's story kept changing.
On Friday, they interviewed the girl, who told them that the person who stabbed her was her "mommy," investigators said.

Police then got a warrant for Jackson's arrest and waited for her to come in for an interview with DFACS, but she never showed up. Officials say they soon found out she was "trying to use family and friends to elude capture."
Friday night, officers took Jackson into custody at a home on Bayberry Drive in southwest Atlanta.
She is now being held at the Clayton County Jail.
