A Kentucky State Police Trooper was recently dispatched to a Berea residence to investigate a reported assault. Upon their arrival at the Radford Hollow Road home, the officer located a male subject in the roadway with a stab wound to his torso.
When the officer spoke with the victim, he stated that his girlfriend had become angry with him during an argument and stabbed him with a knife. The victim was provided first aid from the Trooper before being transported to a Lexington hospital.
The suspect, later identified as Flora Carrier of McKee, contacted 911 and reported that she had also been assaulted. Flora Carrier was located at a nearby residence and was also transported to the hospital. The suspected knife used during the attack was discovered in car driven by Carrier.
When speaking with the victim at the hospital, officers say he claimed that Carrier stabbed him with the knife and then used it to cause injury to herself. Carrier allegedly told police that the victim stabbed himself and then attempted to attack her with the knife. Officials, however, could not locate any defensive wounds on Carrier’s body.
The victim reportedly told police that Carrier had been abusive towards him on several occasions before displaying scars from previous attacks.
Police arrested Carrier and lodged her in the Madison County Detention Center where she was charged with 2nd Degree Assault.
