They heard yelling and screaming, and shortly after they heard what sounded like a fight.They left their room to investigate the disturbance.

Officer Brioso translated for me with v, who did not speak English. v said that he and his girlfriend were in their bedroom, drinking alcohol. They began to argue because v did not buy any Christmas gifts for Miss De Jesus. Miss De Jesus left and got a knife from the kitchen. She then returned to the bedroom and attacked v with the knife. v stated that she was attempting to cut his throat with the knife. They began to struggle while v tried to take the knife away from Miss De Jesus. While trying to take the knife away from her, Miss De Jesus cut her right index finger. After the knife was taken away from Miss De Jesus she continued to attack v, scratching him, and strangling him.
After the fight was stopped, Miss De Jesus brought the knife back into the kitchen. v identified the knife for me and it was secured to be turned in for evidence. At that time Cataldo Ambulance was notified to treat Miss De Jesus’s finger. She was treated on the scene and but refused transport to a hospital.
