SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A local man has been accused of stabbing his girlfriend in the bicep.

Dakota Washington, 21, was charged Sunday with domestic abuse and willful injury.

Washington and the woman got into an argument on Sunday evening, and he threw something at her.

Washington told her that he should just “stab or slice” her instead, the police complaint said. The woman was allegedly stabbed in the bicep with a 4-inch pocketknife.

According to the police complaint, she felt a burning sensation and then saw a gush of blood.

Washington then chased her out of the house, which caused her to fear for her life. She called 911 and then ran to a neighbor’s house. She was transported to the hospital, where she received 11 stitches.

Domestic abuse is a serious misdemeanor. Willful injury is a Class-D felony.
