Blotter: Girlfriend says she stabbed boyfriend twice

A 31-year-old woman told police Tuesday that she stabbed her boyfriend twice because he was "coming towards her and she felt threatened," according to Denton police spokesman Shane Kizer.

The 36-year-old man, who suffered stab wounds to his back and side, was taken to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton with injuries that were not life threatening, Kizer said. His current condition is unknown. 

Kizer said the man left the home on foot at about 1:20 a.m. Tuesday before a family member picked him up and drove him to the hospital. No arrests have been made. Kizer said it's unclear whether the man wants to file charges.
