SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police arrested a woman who they said repeatedly punched her girlfriend in the face and pulled a knife on her after the victim tried to break-up with her.

Police took Martha Perez, 35, into custody and prosecutors are now charging her with second-degree felonies.

The victim told police that she and Perez had been in a relationship for about 10 months but decided Friday she didn't want to be with Perez anymore.

When the victim told Perez she was breaking up with her, Perez became upset and started punching her in the face. Perez then placed the victim in a rear hold, pulled out a knife and told her she is not leaving her, according to an arrest affidavit.

A relative of the victim told police when he went outside and tried to intervene, Perez began breaking the front windows of their home with the knife before swinging it and cutting him in hand.

Perez fled from the scene before officers arrived but she was arrested just two days after the attack.

Perez is being charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Her bail has been set at $100,000.
