07/14/2020- More details have been released about last week’s alleged stabbing at Menominee’s Lighthouse Pier. According to the criminal complaint, police were dispatched to the lighthouse on the evening of July 7th for a report of a stabbing. Once on site, they found 18-year-old Avenda Blanchette lying on the pier with a four-inch open wound in her upper thigh. Blanchette reported that 33-year-old Julia Okafor attacked her with a large knife, and Okafor also allegedly chased a 15-year-old girl with that knife, yelled ethnic insults and threats at 14-year-old male, and choked a 15-year-old male at the scene. Okafor was arrested a short time later and was arraigned in Menominee County Court on five felony charges, including two counts of Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm, Carrying a Dangerous Weapon, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, and Ethnic Intimidation. She was released on a $10000 personal recognizance bond, however, Menominee County Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey Rogg filed a motion requesting that be revoked and that the court remand her to the custody of the Menominee County Sheriff due to the nature of the alleged crimes and Okafor’s prior criminal record. Okafor is due back in court for a probable cause conference July 21st.
