A Sioux Falls woman was charged over the weekend for allegedly stabbing her boyfriend in the leg.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says an officer was flagged down around 2:15am Saturday by the victim, who lives in an apartment building at 8th and Cliff.

He says the man, who had a puncture wound to the back of his leg, told police he had been in a nearby apartment.

The man said he and his girlfriend had been arguing, and when he laid down on the bed she had stabbed his leg with a knife.

Clemens says 51-year-old Malinda Louise Hutchinson was charged with domestic aggravated assault.

The injury to the 50-year-old man was not serious.

Clemens says the two had been arguing because Hutchinson didn't want her boyfriend to go out.

He says both had been drinking.
