A woman is accused of slashing her boyfriend with a fork because he took too long to answer the door, according to Fort Worth police.
Tasha Jones, 26, was arrested Sunday on an accusation of aggravated assault with a weapon, according to a police report. She was being held at a Mansfield jail Wednesday in lieu of $20,000 bail.
Fort Worth officers responded to the 8700 block of Normandale Street late Sunday evening and found 20-year-old William Lee King with cuts on his right hand and his back.
According to the police report, King told investigators he had been sleeping inside the apartment when he heard Jones banging on the door outside. When he opened the door, he said, Jones was angry and screaming at him.
He said Jones pushed him in the chest and began “slashing” him with a silver object that he thought was a knife.
King said he ran outside and two neighbors called 911.
Police said Jones then came out of the apartment with a wine bottle and threatened to hit King with it. She then went back inside and locked the door.
When police arrived, Jones told officers she was mad because she had been knocking on the apartment door for about 30 minutes.
According to the police report, Jones said she yelled and pushed King but never used a knife on him. She said she did not threaten to hit King with a bottle.
King told officers that he saw Jones throw a silver object by the washer and dryer. The investigator found a silver fork in the area, and King thought that was the weapon used on him.
King said he and Jones have been living together for about two months, according to the police report.
