A Glendale man with a history of domestic violence has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a woman, narrowly missing her heart.
According to the police report, the pair had been drinking and the suspect, later identified as Kevin Robert Wilkinson II, became depressed and said he didn't want to live anymore. The suspect's father tried to console his son and the woman went to bed, the report stated.
The victim said she woke up in the hospital and that was all she remembered.
Officers found the woman on the kitchen floor bleeding from the back and screaming that Wilkinson stabbed her. The victim told officers when she woke up she saw blood all over the bed and went to get the suspect's dad, who was sleeping in another room.
Police found the suspect in the bedroom with a wound to chest. Police said a folding knife was found a few feet away from the bed lying halfway under a T-shirt with dried blood on it.
At the hospital, police interviewed Wilkinson who said he thought he "nicked" the victim with the knife. When he saw her bleeding, he stabbed himself in he chest.
However, doctors estimated the victim's wound to be about four inches deep and nearly hit her aorta.
Wilkinson was arrested on one count of second-degree attempted murder, one count of aggravated assault and one count of aggravated domestic violence.
Police said they've been called to the home multiple times for domestic violence, including in February 2010, March 2010, and December 2011.
