LITTLE ROCK, AR – One woman has been arrested after her boyfriend told police she stabbed him in the head with a switchblade.
According to reports, around 1:31 pm on January 28, officials from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office responded to 11 Grande Court in Little Rock after getting a call about an assault. When they arrived, they found the victim, 49-year-old Michael Cash, suffering from a stab wound to the head. Cash was reportedly unsteady on his feet and had trouble answering questions, but told police that his girlfriend, 45-year-old Tammie Biggs, had cut him on his head with a knife, knocked him unconscious with an unknown object, then left the scene in her vehicle, possibly heading to her home at 3700 Bruno Court.
Police say Cash initially refused treatment, but was eventually transported to Baptist Hospital where doctors say that he suffered a concussion as a result of the attack, and that his injury was consistent with a stab wound.
At 3:40 pm, police found Biggs at her residence, where she reportedly stated that she “did not stab anyone.” Biggs told police that Cash began to get rough with her and had hit his head on a nail on the wall, at which point she called the police and left the scene. Biggs reportedly told police that she did not have a knife in her vehicle, but upon searching it, police uncovered a green switchblade knife which Biggs said was a birthday present. Upon being questioned at the hospital, Cash confirmed that the knife used in the attack was a grayish green switchblade.
Biggs was arrested and charged with 2nd Degree Domestic Battery and Carrying a Prohibited Weapon.
The investigation is ongoing.
