Woman Allegedly Attacks Boyfriend in Domestic Violence Dispute

| Feb 1, 2011 | Domestic Violence |

A North Carolina woman was charged with inflicting serious bodily injury as well as assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly attacking her live-in boyfriend during a heated domestic dispute last month, according to a detective from the Enfield, North Carolina police department. The woman’s arrest came after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend numerous times all over his upper body.

Apparently the couple had been drinking together before the situation erupted into the alleged incidence of domestic violence. Other reasons that could have led the woman to attack her boyfriend are unknown at this time.

One of the stab wounds suffered by the man had the potential to be fatal. Although he is expected to make a full recovery, doctors are saying the situation could have easily become more serious. The Enfield, North Carolina woman charged in the incident was being held in jail on $50,000 bond until her hearing set for the end of January.

Situations where men are attacked and killed by women in domestic violence disputes are far less common than those involving women being attacked and killed by men. The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics cites figures from the year 2000 where just 5 percent of all murders of men in the country were committed by a female intimate partner, whereas 30 percent of women murdered that year were killed by an intimate partner. The Bureau also has statistics to suggest that between 1993 and 2004, 1/4th of all males and close to half of all female children in the U.S. grew up in a home where at least one incident of domestic violence occurred in that timeframe.
