A Denison couple allegedly stabbed each other Sunday afternoon, resulting in the arrest of the girlfriend and the boyfriend being sent to the hospital. However, police said the boyfriend is expected to face charges as well.
At about noon on Sunday, Denison Police responded to a domestic disturbance call in the 900 block of West Coffin Street. Denison Police Lt. Mike Eppler said the couple lived together, and an argument had turned violent.
“They had been arguing all day, according to her,” Eppler said. “He assaulted her with a baseball bat as well as shoved her, slapped her and choked her.”
During the altercation, the 22-year-old boyfriend allegedly grabbed a steak knife and stabbed the 18-year-old girlfriend in the buttocks, Eppler said. The woman then gained control of the knife and turned it on the man.
“While he had the knife, she grabbed his hands and he wound up getting stabbed multiple times as well,” Eppler said.
The man was transported to the hospital, and stayed overnight due to internal injures caused by the stabbing. Eppler said the injuries did not appear to be life threatening. Police identified the girlfriend as Megan Rena Probus, who was treated then arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, family violence. She was booked into the Grayson County Jail, and bond was set at $25,000.
Police have not identified the boyfriend as charges were not yet brought against him Monday morning. Eppler said the case will be sent to the District Attorney’s Office, so the department can obtain an arrest warrant for the man.
