Two people were arrested Monday after a domestic dispute ended with a stabbing.
Bartholomew County deputies were called to the 6000 block of East State Street at about 6 p.m. Monday evening. That’s where 40-year-old Elijuah B. Nail of Bloomington approached police and told them that he had been stabbed in the lower back side. He said an argument with his girlfriend turned violent when she stabbed him.
But when police found Nail’s girlfriend, 26-year-old Kristen A. Wise of Bloomington at a nearby convenience store with their RV, she also appeared injured. She said that Neil had been strangling her, so she pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed him to defend herself, says Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department.
Police searched the RV the couple was using and and found the knife as well as drugs and drug paraphernalia, according to police reports.
They both were arrested. Wise on charges of possession of a controlled substance, and Nail on preliminary charges of strangulation, domestic battery and interfering with the reporting of a crime.
