An arrest warrant affidavit states that Gutierrez and the man went to her apartment on Thursday after drinking at a bar. She became “confrontational” and accused him of “not helping her with the bills,” the affidavit states.

The confrontation escalated, police said, and Gutierrez grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the man multiple times.

The man was stabbed in his neck, right hand, left leg and back, police said.

He ran away and called for help, and police officers met him at the apartment’s leasing office.

The affidavit states he was “bleeding profusely” and a blood trail led to the woman’s apartment.

The man was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center in stable condition.

A warrant for Gutierrez’s arrest was issued that same day. Records show she was taken into custody on Tuesday and her bond is set at $75,000.
