LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman has been charged with assault and attempted murder after police say she stabbed another woman in the back of the head.
According to an arrest warrant, the incident took place on June 20. Authorities say 26-year-old Marilyn Amanda McCloud's boyfriend had also had a relationship with a woman referred to in the report as his fiancee.
At 12:30 a.m., police say McCloud's boyfriend told her he was ending their relationship. A few hours later, according to the arrest report, McCloud knocked on the door of the fiance's home on Clara Avenue, near the intersection of Taylor Blvd. and Longfield Ave. Police say she then pushed her way into the home and stabbed her in the back of the head, as well as in the left shoulder.
As a result, the woman required three staples to her head and stitches in her shoulder, according to the arrest warrant.
Police say that while McCloud was en route to the victim's home, she sent her ex-boyfriend a text message saying she was going to "do something" to the woman, and that "she was going to be on the news."
It was not the first time McCloud had made threats, according to the warrant. Police say that on June 1, she allegedly threatened to shoot and stab the woman and laugh as she watched her "bleed out."
A warrant for McCloud's arrest was issued on June 20 and she was taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon. She is charged with attempted murder, first degree burglary and first degree assault.
