Rockledge, FL (November 23, 2018) – Police say that yesterday on Thanksgiving, a man was severely stabbed in a domestic dispute on Carolina Avenue that left him with serious injuries.
The injuries were so serious that the man had to be airlifted from the scene. A witness across the street was playing video games when his children told him that there was a man lying in their driveway. They claimed that he was naked and bleeding.
When the neighbor went to investigate, they found the man screaming for help. He had severe injuries to his torso and hands and said that somebody cut him up with a katana.
Police say that the victim’s wife fled the scene in her vehicle, but they were able to catch up to her in the afternoon, where she was charged for her role in the stabbing.
