An Ohio woman is in jail after she allegedly stabbed her twin sister in the chest during a fight over an apple fritter.

Contisha Hayes, 21, and her sister, Tamara Delaney, 21, were in the kitchen cooking the fritter when they ‘started to play fight’ over the treat, investigators say.

However, the joke quickly turned serious when Delaney pulled Hayes’ hair prompting an angry response. She allegedly took out a knife and stabbed her sister in the chest in retaliation.

Someone at the home, in the 900 block of Springdale Street in Akron City, called 911 after the incident that occurred around 11:30 p.m. Christmas night.

Officers arrived to find Delaney with stabbing wounds and she was rushed to Akron City Hospital for treatment. Authorities said her injuries were non-life threatening, Ohio.com reported.

Hayes, of Callis Oval, has been charged with felonious assault. She is being held in the Summit County Jail.
