Holroyd was sought by authorities after Aaron L. Moore, 18, and Andrea Crawford, 34, both of Ironton, had reported they had been assaulted with a knife at 615 S. 10th St., Apartment 10, on the evening of Sept. 7.

Police were called to 415 Mulberry St. later that evening by the pair who reported the incident there.

The two were treated and released at an area hospital for head injuries. Ironton Police Chief Jim Carey described their injuries as not serious.

Holroyd will appear in Ironton Municipal Court at 9 a.m. Thursday for her arraignment.

Until then she will remain the county jail.
