A New Mexico woman is facing charges after police say she stabbed a wheelchair-bound man in the eye with a plastic candy cane.

The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports that 51-year-old Norma Moreno was arrested Friday and charged with causing great bodily harm to the victim's eye.

According to police, the bizarre attack occurred in January when Moreno got into an argument with 46-year-old Joe Jacquez. A police report said Moreno hit Jacquez four times then stabbed him in the left eye.

Authorities said Jacquez later had eye surgery at the University Medical Center in Lubbock, where a doctor determined he had suffered retinal detachment, partial lens luxation and a lid laceration.

It was unclear if Moreno had an attorney.
