Police responded to an apartment on S. Walnut Street after a man reportedly threw a knife at his girlfriend during a domestic dispute, according to the Bloomington Police Department.

Officers arrived at an apartment in the 1800 block of S. Walnut Street around 7:27 p.m. after a woman reported that a man had cut her with a knife, according to the BPD. When officers arrived they found a woman “bleeding profusely” from the head.

The woman, 43-years-old, said she’d been drinking with her 67-year-old boyfriend, and they began to argue. The boyfriend then picked up a knife, threw it, and allegedly hit her in the head. The woman then ran to the McDonalds to seek help. The knife struck her in the forehead, and caused a laceration.

“Officers noted that the woman had several cuts on her neck and she reported that (her boyfriend) frequently attacks her with knives,” said the police.

When officers arrived at the apartment the boyfriend refused to open the door so police forced entry, and arrested him. Officers located a large knife in the residence where the woman had been sitting.

The woman was treated at the scene by IU Health Bloomington EMS workers, but refused to be transported to the hospital.

The boyfriend was taken to the Monroe County jail, and faces the charge of domestic battery with a deadly weapon, which is a level 5 felony.

All charges are mere allegations unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
