The third time a Whitehall woman allegedly stabbed the same man resulted in a call to police for the first time.
Whitehall police responded to a 911 call at 1:45 p.m. June 9 at an apartment building in the 4200 block of Rickenbacker Avenue.
Police found a man had been stabbed "at least once close to the center of his chest."
The victim told police he lives with his wife, according to one account, and their 6-month-old son.
He told police his wife stabbed him with a "small knife."
The man ran to a neighbor's apartment, where police were called and Whitehall medics transported the man to Grant Medical Center.
At 4:45 p.m. June 9, police executed a search warrant at the apartment leased by the suspect, a 32-year-old woman.
Police found a blood trail in the apartment but no cutting instrument that could be clearly associated with the stabbing, according to reports.
Another search warrant was used to access a different apartment in the same building, where police found the woman.
There, police also reported finding a clean, serrated steak knife on the dining table and a washcloth with diluted blood.
In a subsequent interview, the victim told police he was in "a long-term spousal" relationship with the woman, who recently was released from jail and had since been drinking and taking prescription drugs.
The man reported they had both been to a friend's house the previous evening to watch a basketball game, but she disappeared for several hours. They continued an argument the next day about where she had been that escalated to the stabbing, he said.
The man told police it was the third time she had stabbed or cut him with a knife, but the first time police were contacted.
Police arrested the woman for felonious assault, a first-degree felony, and transported her to the Franklin County jail.
In other recent Whitehall police reports:
* An 18-year-old man was shot in the right knee outside his East Mound Street residence June 9 and will recover after surgery, according to police.
Police responded to multiple 911 calls of reports of six to eight shots heard at 11:05 a.m. June 9 in the 3900 block of East Mound Street.
Multiple witnesses reported the shots were fired from a vehicle that fled east on East Mound Street and that someone had been shot.
Police reported screams from a residence and a woman told police her son had been shot.
The victim was found lying in an open garage with a gunshot wound to the right knee. According to reports, he became "upset" when asked by police about the incident.
Whitehall medics transported him to Grant Medical Center.
Two people at the residence told police they were asleep when the shooting occurred, did not know anyone who drove a vehicle that matched the suspect's, and did not appear concerned with helping the investigation, according to reports.
Nine spent shell casings were recovered at the scene, including .380-caliber and 9mm caliber, but it is believed the .380-caliber casing is not associated with the June 9 shooting, reports said.
Bullet holes were found in a fence and in an unoccupied residence near where the man was shot, police said.
The victim's mother told police that she and her son were walking to her car with his infant child in a baby carrier when she saw a vehicle approach.
The vehicle had a broken front windshield and plastic covering the passenger-side window, making it difficult to confirm that two men were inside it, reports said.
The woman reported she heard at least three shots and that her son ran toward the garage.
During questioning, police found a possible match for the suspect vehicle on Brookway Road in Columbus.
The vehicle has broken windows and had two bullet holes in it, and a camouflage tarp on the back seat also had a bullet hole, but police could not confirm it was involved in the June 9 shooting, reports said.
