A Bowling Green woman has been arrested for felonious assault and the alleged victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.
On Wednesday around 5:30 a.m., Bowling Green police responded to the 300 block of North Summit Street for an EMS call.
Upon their arrival, a man stepped out of the house and told the officer that nothing had happened and that he fell.
He was not wearing a shirt and was holding a towel to his right shoulder area. The officer observed blood on his pants and blood running down his arm, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.
When he removed the towel, the officer observed a large laceration to the shoulder area. EMS transported the man to the hospital.
At the hospital, he told police he was near the bottom of the stairs when he fell. He snagged a nail hanging out of the wall, which caused the injury. When additional officers arrived, he said that Whitney Trautman had stabbed him, according to the report.
The man told police that Trautman had woke up angry and after he told her to shut up, she stabbed him with a knife.
Trautman, 32, was taken to the police division.
She told officers she and the man had been arguing.
The argument continued into the kitchen where she said the man began choking her with both hands. She told police she couldn’t get the man to release his grip so she reached behind her, grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the shoulder, according to the report.
She told police the man had been abusing her for months and she thought he was going to kill her.
Trautman reportedly became combative when placed in handcuffs. EMS was called and transported her to the hospital before she was taken to jail.
Trautman was charged with felonious assault and domestic violence.
She remained in jail Thursday on a $35,000 bond.
