An Akron woman was arrested Thursday after police say she stabbed her 58-year-old boyfriend after he spat on her during an argument.
Britt Y. Smith, 43, was being held in the Summit County Jail on charges of felonious assault and tampering with evidence.
Police say Smith and her boyfriend got into a fight about 7 p.m. inside her apartment in the 200 block of Cole Avenue. During the quarrel, police say the boyfriend spat in her face, and Smith retaliated by pulling out a knife and cutting him near his neck.
The victim left the apartment, walked down the street and had a man call police. His injuries appear to be nonlife-threatening.
Police say the knife used in the stabbing was found in a nearby garbage receptacle.
