Greenwood Police say a woman stabbed her boyfriend, then kept him from running after her by throwing his prosthetic leg into their front yard.
Greenwood Police say 48-year-old Michelle Thomas called them Monday night and said that she had stabbed her boyfriend after he hit her. Thomas told police that she had returned home after buying her boyfriend cigarettes, tossed them to him and then he got up and hit her in the ear. She says she grabbed a knife and swung it at the man, then pulled off his prosthetic leg and tossed it and a spare leg out the door so he couldn’t come after her.
Authorities say the boyfriend told them that Thomas attacked him for no reason. He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for cuts to his hands and leg.
Thomas has been charged with aggravated criminal domestic violence.
