A San Francisco woman was arrested in an assault on Christmas morning in the Mission, police Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

The 28-year-old victim was in a tent in the 200 block of 13th Street about 7:35 a.m. and heard someone outside calling her name, Newman said. When she peeked her head out, she was reportedly attacked with a knife by a 27-year-old woman. After the attack, the woman ran and the victim chased her down. With the aid of her husband, the victim was able to detain the suspect, before taking her to a nearby shelter to call police.

The suspect was arrested and identified as Drusilla Holmgren. Holmgren was charged with attempted homicide and a weapons violation, Newman said.

Both women were injured during the incident and taken to the hospital for their injuries, which were not life threatening. The victim sustained wounds to her back, neck and face, Newman said, and Holmgren sustained a wound to her eye.
