Tenant Tries to Cut Woman’s Throat During Eviction, Victim Fights Back

INVERNESS (CITRUS) – After nearly a week on the run, a woman who tried to cut her roommate’s throat is behind bars in Citrus County.

According to officials, 21-year-old Taylor Abbott arrived at her residence on North Corbin Ave, just before midnight on September 27th. Reports indicate that Abbott was drunk and being belligerent with her roommate and homeowner, Lonii Duncan. During a verbal altercation, Duncan asked Abbott to move out of the residence. The request caused Abbott to become so enraged that she threw her chair behind her and leapt towards Duncan.  Abbott then armed herself with a brass knuckle folding knife, held it to Duncan’s throat, and told her that she would cut her throat. Thinking of her 4-month-old son who was asleep in a bedroom, Duncan grabbed Abbott’s arm and began punching her in the face. Duncan eventually disarmed Abbott but she fled the residence before Sheriff’s Deputies arrived on the scene. Despite efforts to track Abbott with K-9, she evaded arrest.

Duncan’s finger was bitten during the scuffle but otherwise she was uninjured and refused medical attention.

Duncan told RNRF during an interview, “I’m not violent, but all I could think about was her actually killing me, and then I’d never see my four-month-old son again.”

After avoiding arrest for nearly a week, Investigators located Abbott at Citrus Memorial Hospital on October 3rd. Due to Abbot being on parole for a prior drug conviction, investigators were able to charge Abbott for being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Abbott was later charged with Aggravated Assault with a Weapon and Violation of Parole.

Abbott was later charged with one count of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon (without intent to kill), and Violating Parole. She is currently behind bars, held on a $2,000 bond.

Duncan allowed Abbott to move into her residence three-weeks prior to the incident, due to circumstances with her previous living conditions. Duncan says “I was just trying to help, but I’m not going to put my family at risk with her prescription drug abuse.”
