A woman told police her boyfriend attacked her and she defended herself with a steak knife, but police reported that her story didn’t add up and she was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police responded to an apartment in the 300 block of Avenue G, where the woman described the alleged assault.

The officer asked to see her injuries, and she showed the officer her lip, but the officer did not see any injury.

The boyfriend told police that she had been gone for two days recently and that when she came home, she was intoxicated and began verbally abusing him.

On Saturday, he was folding laundry and she hit him on the head, he said. He pushed her away.

He told police that was the only physical contact he made with her before she grabbed the knife.

He said that she began coming toward him with the knife and he grabbed her wrist to prevent her from stabbing him.

He backed out of the apartment, and she locked the door.

The man told the apartment manager about the knife and asked to be let back into the apartment, according to the report, and the woman again attempted to stab the man.

The apartment manager intervened.

Police reported that the woman was verbally abusive to them during the interview, as well.


Other report

1600 block of Village East Drive — Police are investigating the report of a woman who said her boyfriend sexually assaulted her while she cleaned an apartment.

She said she was cleaning the back bedroom of the apartment Saturday morning because they were moving out, when her boyfriend came in carrying his baby and said he wanted to have sex with her.

She said she didn’t want to, but he forced her as she continued to object, she reported to police.

He was interrupted because the baby started crying, she said, and she got dressed again.

He later asked for the key to the mailbox, and when she told him she didn’t have it, he grabbed her by the hair and slammed her head into the door jamb, and threatened her, she reported.

Police had not located the man.
