WASHINGTON COUNTY, VA (WJHL) - Washington County, Va. Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a woman who stabbed a man with a hunting knife while engaging in sexual relations.
According to Washington County Sheriff Fred Newman, deputies responded to Quick-Stop, 15324 Lee Highway in Bristol, Va., on Oct. 13, where they made contact with a man who said he and Bonnie Ann Mumpower -- also known as Bonnie Ann Stevens -- were having sex when she pulled out a hunting knife and stabbed him in the neck.
The man told deputies he left the home and went to the Quick-Stop for help.
According to the release, emergency crews responded to the convenience store and treated the man for a severe stab wound before he was taken to Bristol Regional Medical Center.
