Upon being apprehended, she allegedly told police she attacked him "because she wanted to leave"
Police in Akron, Ohio, say that a woman repeatedly stabbed her boyfriend following a salsa-related dispute.
According to a police report, officers arrived at the scene of the incident and found the victim, a 61-year-old man, clutching his stomach. He said his girlfriend, Phyllis D. Jefferson, 50, of Canton, Ohio, had become angry because he ate all the salsa and then she apparently stabbed him repeatedly with a pen.
Jefferson then allegedly fled but was pulled over by police on Interstate 77, west of Akron. The report states that Jefferson stabbed her boyfriend “because she wanted to leave.” She has been charged with felonious assault and criminal damaging.
Cleveland’s WJW News described the victim’s injuries as “non life-threatening.”
