In a police report, however, the man tells a different story.

He said that the woman lashed out at him with a knife while he was sleeping and accused him of cheating.

Officers said there were other relatives, including the woman’s two children, in the home when the violence broke out.

They were not injured, but a four-year-old girl cried out as her mother was led away in handcuffs.

As of late Tuesday morning, police said the case was still under investigation and they had not decided whether the woman would face charges.
