A Denison man was hospitalized Tuesday night with injuries that were not life-threatening after Denison Police say he intentionally stabbed himself during a fight with a woman he lived with.


Lt. Mike Eppler said at approximately 11 p.m., officers responded to a call of a domestic dispute at a residence in the 200 block of South Travis. Upon their arrival, Eppler said officers found a 32-year-old woman with visible injuries stemming from an assault and a 37-year-old man to be heavily intoxicated with a stab wound.


“He put the knife in her hand and then basically pushed himself up on the knife,” Eppler said. “And he was saying so when we got there, that he had done this to himself.”


The Denison Police lieutenant said the man was transported to Texoma Medical Center where he underwent surgery and is expected to recover. Eppler said he became upset when he learned of the woman’s whereabouts earlier in the day.


“She had been at somebody else’s house, and it was a male,” Eppler said. “So that created a relationship problem, I guess we could say.”


Eppler said the Grayson County District Attorney’s Office would review the case and determine whether any charges would be filed.
