Woman charged after stabbing boyfriend in arm

CHERRY VALLEY TOWNSHIP — A Cherry Valley woman is being charged with felonious assault and domestic violence after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend Sunday night.

Kathy Pumphrey, 28, of 2489 Route 6, was charged, Monday, with two counts of felonious assault, a second degree felony; and one count of domestic violence, a first- degree misdemeanor, according to court records.

Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Department deputies were called to the Route 6 address at 7:41 p.m. for a report of a stabbing. The victim met deputies in the driveway, holding his left arm, which had a visible laceration, according to reports.

He told deputies Pumphrey charged him in a threatening manner with a knife. He held his arm up to block her and was stabbed in the arm. The knife also deflected into his abdomen, according to reports.

The victim said he and Pumphrey were arguing and he was packing his personal belongings to leave. Pumphrey became upset and obtained large kitchen knife and allegedly used it to flatten the tires on his van, according to reports.

As he was walking up to the front door on the porch, Pumphrey allegedly yelled that he was not coming into her house. She then allegedly charged at him with the knife raised above her head, according to reports.

Four children between the ages of 7 and 14 were also home at the time and witnessed the incident, according to reports.

Pumphrey was transported to Ashtabula County Jail Sunday night. The couple has lived together for two years, according to reports.
