An Oak Harbor woman is being held in jail on $65,000 bail for allegedly stabbing a man in the chest with a kitchen knife, according to court documents.
Prosecutors charged Helen Monzon, 45, in Island County Superior Court May 8 with assault in the second degree.
The crime was charged as being domestic violence-related.
A deputy with the Island County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report in rural Oak Harbor of a man who had a knife wound to his chest.
The 53-year-old man told an investigator that he and his girlfriend, Monzon, hadn’t consumed alcohol in about a year, but drank a case of beer that night. He said he walked into the kitchen to find Monzon holding a knife, tapping it on the counter.
He asked her what she was doing and she came at him with a knife in each hand, according to the deputy’s report on the incident. He blacked out and later awoke to discover he had a stab wound to his chest.
The report indicates that the victim was in stable condition and was stitched up at the hospital.
