CROWN POINT — A Gary woman stabbed a man in the head and throat Thursday because she thought he was cheating on her, court records allege.
Ebony Edwards, 42, accused the man of cheating while talking to him on the phone and attacked him after he arrived home from work, Lake Criminal Court records say.
The man told police he and Edwards lived together on and off for more than a year, and she wanted their relationship to work out. He did not want the relationship to continue, because she previously "split his head open" and had a temper, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Friday.
The man told police he arrived home in the 4900 block of Maryland Street, changed out of his work clothes and realized Edwards was behind him as he walked downstairs.
Edwards is accused of pushing the man down on a couch and stabbing him. He wrestled one knife away, but Edward stabbed him with a second knife, records say.
As she twisted the knife in his throat, she said, "(N-word), I will kill you," records allege.
One of the man's relatives heard him yelling for help, grabbed Edwards' hand and persuaded her to drop the knife, records say.
The man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
Edwards was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, two counts of domestic battery and criminal confinement.
