A Rocky Mount woman who allegedly stabbed a Roanoke man in the buttocks on July 22 turned herself in to police Friday evening.
Brandy Lynn Epperly, 24, was arrested on one count of malicious wounding, according to Lt. Mark Sweeney with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Justin Hilton responded to a domestic call on July 22 about 3:44 a.m. at a residence on Calico Rock Road, Sweeney said. Upon entering the house, the deputy found a 24-year-old man in the kitchen bleeding from a puncture wound in the right side of his buttocks.
The victim told the deputy he was lying in bed when his girlfriend, Epperly, allegedly attacked him and stabbed him with a knife, Sweeney said.
The suspect fled the scene before the deputy arrived, Sweeney said. The knife was not located at the scene.
The victim was transported to Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital for treatment, Sweeney said.
Epperly is being held in the Western Virginia Regional Jail without bond.
Malicious wounding is a Class 3 felony, punishable by five to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.
