Deputies responded to a stabbing incident in Argyle on Saturday, when an argument between a couple resulted in injuries, according to Denton County Sheriff’s Office reports.
Shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday, deputies arrived in the 7300 block of Evelyn Lane after the boyfriend’s mother called police to report that her son had been stabbed by his ex-girlfriend. The mother said her son and the ex-girlfriend live together in a separate house on the property but are not dating anymore.
According to reports, the mother and her husband heard some arguing before checking on her son.
The 20-year-old man said he and his ex-girlfriend were having an argument when he told her that he didn’t want to be living together anymore. The 26-year-old woman then grabbed his cellphone and refused to give it back, he told deputies. He said he was finally able to retrieve his phone and went upstairs to a room where he found the ex-girlfriend holding a knife.
The man said she stabbed him in the upper right back of his chest and then again on the lower right side of his abdomen before running out with the knife toward a nearby field and hopping a fence to get away, the report states.
Deputies reported the wounds were bleeding and were about a half-inch deep. No medical treatment was sought at the time.
The Sheriff’s Office is searching for the suspect.
