A suspect is in custody in the deadly stabbing of a 17-year-old Texas girl near the Galleria over the weekend, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner says.

Charges have been filed against 37-year-old Kaysone Sky Blossom who was arrested in the fatal stabbing of a woman at 5100 West Alabama Street about 11:10 a.m. on Saturday.

Blossom is charged with capital murder in the 230th State District Court.

She is accused in the death of 17-year-old Kayla Stevenson.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant B. Roberts and Detective L. Lange reported:

Police say a sergeant working an extra job in the area was flagged down by a citizen who said that two females were fighting, possibly over a bag.

The sergeant went to the scene and found the teen on the sidewalk with multiple stab wounds. Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.

Police say Stevenson worked at a store in the Galleria and was on her way to work.

Detectives learned Stevenson was walking to work when she was robbed and stabbed multiple times. Witnesses described the suspect as an Asian female, 25 to 35 years old, wearing black clothing and riding a blue “cruiser style” bicycle.

Further investigation and tips from members of the community identified Blossom as the suspect in this incident.

HPD SWAT team officers arrested Blossom without incident at her residence in the 10200 block of Beechnut Street today (Dec. 13). She was subsequently charged and booked into the Harris County Jail.
