Police plan to charge a Myrtle Beach woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend, according to an incident report.
Myrtle Beach police responded about 4:30 p.m. Monday to an apartment on the 200 block of Cedar Street for the reported stabbing.
A man said he got home and his girlfriend, who he said had been drinking, started yelling at him and smacking him, an incident report states.
He told police he told her to stop hitting him, but she continued then grabbed a butcher knife and stabbed him on the upper left side of his chest.
Never miss a local story.
The woman told police the man had left the night before and she hadn’t seen him. She said they were arguing, that he had a knife and he fell on it. She said she went to a neighbors house and said she might have “stabbed the victim with a butcher knife.”
Police said the woman changed her story as they were talking to her first saying the man fell on a knife he had while they were arguing, then saying she went to a neighbors house and said she might have “stabbed the victim with a butcher knife,” the report said.
Police were seeking a warrant charging the woman with criminal domestic violence. Charges had not been filed as of Tuesday afternoon. The pair have been a couple for 14 years and live together, the report said.
The victim refused transport to the hospital for treatment of the wound.
