MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 20-year-old Minneapolis woman is accused of stabbing another woman after an altercation on a Metro Transit bus last weekend, according to charges filed Friday in Hennepin County Court.

Drucilla Pennilla Pickens was charged with felony counts of second-degree assault and third-degree assault in connection with the incident.

According to a criminal complaint, Metro Transit Police were called to a report of a stabbing last Sunday on a Metro Transit bus that was stopped at Penn and Oak Avenues in Minneapolis. When authorities arrived, they learned that two women had been arguing over a man on the bus.

Pickens called her sister for help, and the two proceeded to fight with another woman on the bus. The victim tried to spray the two with mace, and the two sisters tried to pull the victim off the bus. Pickens then pulled out a knife and stabbed the woman in the back and sliced her neck, according to the complaint.

Pickens then dropped the knife and fled the scene with her sister. The victim was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center and treated for a punctured lung. Police arrested Pickens, and she admitted she lost her temper and cut the victim.

If convicted, Pickens is facing more than two years in jail and $30,000 in fines.

  1. There's always Google says:

    Drucilla a variation of Drusilla, from the Roman Drusus, in turn from the Greek drosos.


    If you have a Bible around, take a look at Acts 24:24. Or have someone read it to you.

      not sayin its ok what she did but u dont know the half of it. and no she should get life its people out there killing there parents, they self, kids.and shooting up the school. they should be looked up with life. i bet u say that because shes black.its not your problem so why are u so fast to put her down u dont have to pay.

        First of all, I can guarantee it’s not because she is black, that has nothing to do with what she did. I don’t think she should get life in prison either, that is way too extreme for the crime committed. Whatever the story may be she should do the two years though because she did hurt the other woman and clearly lost her temper. No man is worth getting this crazy about though either; I understand things probably escalated but stabbing someone is never ok unless it’s clearly self-defense.

        You can’t even speak English. Black people like this are everybody’s problem.

    You guys are stupid. What does diversity have to do with this article?? I’ve heard of the same thing happening in smaller all white towns. These are two stupid women fighting over some trifling man who probably isn’t even worth it. He probably was at home with his other woman and didn’t even know about the fight. Women.. there are plenty of men in the world. You don’t have to fight over one. Keep your pride and find a new man. Or better yet, spend some time with yourself and learn how to love yourself before you expect someone else to love you!

    She oughta be in the next big hollyweird dangster/hip-hop movie. Probably doesn’t even need ‘acting lessons’. Or maybe she will be sharing a cell with what woman who beat the bejesus out of her 12 year old kid last week, so she can learn more about how to tear down our society.

  5. Jake says:

    I see no need for you to apologize, joe. I seriously doubt that she is a doctor, technician, engineer, truck driver, craftsperson, healthcare provider (at least not a GOOD one), or has ever taken any pride in performing well on ANY job. A senseless, unnecessary, and violent act, that could have been resolved in a more civil way, but wasn’t. Now, the taxPAYER gets to foot the bill for this voluntary nonsense.

    1. Well Jeepers Jake says:

      What do you think should be done? Deport all minorities? Put ’em all in concentration camps?

      On the other hand, it sure is a whole lot easier to sit there and make stupid comments. Have at it!! Give that white MinnesotaNice inner racist free rein!!

      1. no mn nice here says:

        Well jeepers jake, cutting off their welfare would be a good start.

    BFD – another quality day and a new high quality perp and a stabbing
    ain’t it grand reading the names of those involved day … after day …. after day
    I hope to move someday to the City of Freedom and Land of White
    just sayin’
    bam – bam – bam – kaboom. Whole city is now snow white.
    Ha – now I don’t need to move after all. My city is back to normal

  10. why ask why? says:

    Is she going to be banned from Metro Transit for the rest of her life? She should be.

  11. Jake says:

    well jeepers jake, shiver me timbers. It’s too bad that we didn’t have another CCW permit holder on that bus who was willing to intervene. Instead, people like you just look the other way when somebody pulls a knive and nearly kills someone else.
