Police: Woman stabs boyfriend in parking lot of Palestine apartment complex

Posted: Updated:
Police say a 21-year-old woman is behind bars after stabbing her boyfriend in the abdomen.

Palestine police responded to the report of an aggravated assault at Whispering Pines apartments located at 1010 Sugar Lane around 9:14 p.m. Wednesday. Upon arrival, officers approached 21-year-old Joshua Webster who told them his girlfriend had stabbed him in the abdominal area.

Officers learned that Webster and his girlfriend had been involved in an argument over the last two days. The woman reportedly returned to the apartment complex with the intent to damage his vehicle. During a confrontation in the parking lot, Webster thought his girlfriend punched him before realizing that she had actually stabbed him.

Webster was transported to Palestine Regional Medical Center with a laceration injury to his abdomen. His girlfriend left the apartments, possibly fleeing to a residence outside of Palestine.

A warrant was obtained for the woman's arrest this morning and was executed Friday morning when she unexpectedly came to the police department to speak with officers.

The woman was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon involving a dating relationship/family member and taken to the Anderson County Jail. Her bond has been set at $10,000. The woman's identity has not yet been released.
