An Evansville woman was arrested and charged with Domestic Battery with a Deadly Weapon after the Evansville Police Department says she attacked a man with a knife on Wednesday.
Police went to an apartment in the 300 block of SE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. for a reported stabbing on Wednesday night, where upon arrival, they made forced entry after being unable to contact anyone inside.
Inside the apartment, police say they found a large amount of blood on the floor and on the walls, along with an injured man and a woman, who was identified as 48-year-old Audrey Hurtz.
According to EPD, Hurtz claimed that she and the victim were attacked by someone in the living room.
After police asked Hurtz if they would see the alleged attacker come and go if they reviewed security camera footage from the apartment, they say she changed her story and said that the attacker came in through her fourth-floor balcony and fled the same way.
The victim told police that Hurtz was not the attacker, but they say he couldn't provide any reasonable explanation for his wounds.
After speaking to a third party who had said he had visited the apartment earlier on the same day and reviewing evidence, EPD says Hurtz was arrested and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail.
