A Cleveland woman repeatedly stabbed her boyfriend in a fit of rage after finding him naked on top of her 12-year-old daughter.
Cleveland.com reports the 31-year-old man was stabbed five times in his chest and once in the back of his head at a home in Cleveland early Tuesday morning.
A police report says the unidentified woman told investigators she was going to bed when she found the man on top of her daughter naked. The report says the woman grabbed her pocket knife and attacked him.
She then called the police saying that “her boyfriend tried touching her daughter and she stabbed him”.
The man told cops his girlfriend may have attacked him because she thought her 12-year-old daughter had feelings for him but didn’t offer any more details about the incident.
The report shows that the woman and her daughter gave a different accounts of what happened. He was hospitalized and the mother and daughter suffered some lacerations to their hands during the attack.
Meanwhile, the 12-year-old told authorities the naked man touched her under her clothes, telling her, “This is what it is like in the real world when you have a boyfriend,” before sexually assaulting her.
Neither the woman nor the man has been charged, but records show police are investigating a potential sexual assault.
Folks online are urging authorities not to penalize the mother, according to Opposing Views:
“I Hope they don’t file charges against her because if I were her I probably would have done the same thing!!” wrote one person on KTLA 5’s Facebook post about the situation. “These men are SICK!!!!”
“Good!!!” added another. “As a mother and grandmother I give props to this mom for protecting her kid! She went all mama bear and did her job. She better not get charged with any wrongdoing for stepping up to protect her child. Go mom! I hope that Bast^^^^ bled out!”
“There shouldn’t be any charges filed against the mom,” chimed in a third. “As far as that sick sob…. prosecute to the max and put him in general population, the prisoners will take care of him.”
“She def did the right thing protecting her daughter!” agreed a fourth. “And I swear she better not get charged either! Too many women let things like this happen cause they’re too afraid to lose their bf’s but kudos to her for taking action!”
While most supported the mother, a few believe she deserves to be punished.
“Ok I totally understand the mothers rage but two wrongs don’t make a right,” wrote one person. “At the very least she should be charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Sorry. But you don’t get to defend a crime with another crime.”
