A 41-year-old Wayne woman remains in the McClain County Detention Center in lieu of a $15,000 bond.
Nichole M. Garbutt is charged in McClain County District Court with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
The charge stems from an October 5 incident during which she allegedly cut her boyfriend with two knives.
According to an affidavit, a deputy sheriff was sent to the boyfriend’s home shortly after 4 a.m.
There he found the boyfriend sitting on the porch steps. The boyfriend said he’d been on the sofa in the living room when Garbutt attacked him with the knives. He told the deputy she attempted to cut his shirt off and then cut his right leg near the knee.
There was a deep large cut to his leg and his shirt was cut, according to the affidavit.
The boyfriend was taken to Purcell Municipal Hospital by Wadley’s EMS.
After she was handcuffed and in the patrol car, Garbutt said she stabbed the boyfriend in self-defense after he pointed a handgun at her.
She told the deputy “I really like knives. They are so much more personal than guns” and “I wish I could have hurt him more,” according to the affidavit.
