A 48-year-old man sustained a minor head wound today after his girlfriend attacked him with a butcher knife, Daytona Beach police announced.
Kenneth Hilton told police he and his girlfriend were arguing this morning and she went into the kitchen and picked up a butcher knife.
Then Hilton said he went to her father’s house in the 600 block of Hawk Street, where she allegedly attacked him.
He picked up a table to defend himself after she pulled the butcher knife out of her purse. Then he fell on the floor and she stabbed him once in the back of his head, police said.
His wound is not life-threatening.
The woman is being interviewed by the detectives and her name will be released after charges are filed. She faces a charge of aggravated battery.
