A 23-year-old woman who allegedly stabbed her boyfriend Monday night told police she would have stabbed him more if she could have, according to a police report.

She was arrested by the Denton Police Department Monday night after officers spoke with her, her boyfriend and saw his injuries.

Officers were dispatched to the Residence Inn by Marriott hotel, 3761 Interstate 35E, around 11:39 p.m. after a hotel employee reported a man and woman were arguing.

Police spoke with the woman first and learned from both that they were in a verbal argument. She admitted to police that she stabbed him “two or three” times and would have stabbed him more if she could have, according to the report. They also saw blood droppings on the floor.

Officers reached the victim over the phone and learned he was on his way to a hospital. The report says he confirmed the verbal argument and that she stabbed him and cut his left hand.

Police met with him at the hospital and took photos of his stab wounds. The woman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault of a family member with a deadly weapon.
