Belle Rose woman accused of stabbing boyfriend

An Assumption Parish woman was jailed after she allegedly attacked her boyfriend Monday afternoon, stabbing him twice after a domestic dispute turned violent.

Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said deputies found a 21-year-old man stabbed once in the back and once in the chest at a home in the 100 block of Virginia Street in Belle Rose.

The victim told deputies he and his girlfriend were arguing, and as he was trying to leave the residence, she stabbed him in the back and then again in the chest before fleeing the house.

Gwendolyn Simon, 26, 168 Virginia St., Belle Rose, later told deputies that the victim accused her of cheating on him, which led to an argument. She said that she was afraid, picked up a long knife from the kitchen and stabbed him.

Simon told deputies that when she saw blood coming from her boyfriend’s mouth, she became afraid he was injured badly and called 911.

Simon was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center on one felony count of aggravated second-degree battery.

Waguespack said she remained at the detention center on Tuesday while awaiting a bail hearing.
