Once the victim was inside the house, the suspect allegedly stabbed him several times with a six-inch knife. She allegedly stabbed him multiple times in the neck and at least one time in the stomach.
The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office received a call about the incident and dispatched deputies to the scene.

According to an arrest report, the victim appeared to be on the verge of losing consciousness.
The victim was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center, where he underwent emergency surgery.
Meanwhile, West Palm Beach police located the suspect and placed her under arrest. The suspect was subsequently charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Investigators were reportedly able to find a knife in the suspect’s car. According to police, the knife had fresh blood on the blade when police recovered it.
Although the suspect reportedly admitted to arguing with the victim, she told police that she did not stab him.
After being arrested and processed, the suspect was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail. She was initially being held at the jail without possibility of bond.
