AN insomniac was allegedly stabbed with a 12-inch knife after pestering his girlfriend for sex claiming it helped him sleep.
Michael Lozano Flores, 22, told cops in Florida that Vanessa Nicholson, 33, attacked him during a row that broke out when she refused his advances.
Nicholson was arrested at 6.40am on Thursday after Flores attended Fishermen’s Hospital in the city of Marathon with a stab wound to his shoulder and bite marks on his armpit.
The attacked reportedly occurred when an argument between the two moved outside their trailer only for them to find they had locked themselves out.
Flores broke a window to get back in, and alleges that Nicholson attacked him with a knife upon reentering the trailer.
Adam Linhardt, a spokesperson for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, said Nicholson admitted to grabbing Flores by the hair “and that a mutual battery had occurred”.
He added: “A lover’s quarrel ensued that turned violent.
“Nicholson started hitting Lozano Flores as he tried to leave.”
A Florida arrest report said that “Vanessa became upset when [Michael] asked for sex and told him all he cared about was sex.”
Nicholson is also reported to have refused to have sex because she was on her menstrual cycle and not feeling well.
She also claimed to have stabbed and bit Flores in self-defence after he repeatedly punched her, though changed her story several times, sheriff deputies said.
Nicholson, who had minor injuries, was held in jail on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and released later the same day.
Earlier this month, another Florida woman was charged with slashing her fiancé with a kitchen knife because he said he was too tired to romp.
Jennifer Chapman, 37, reportedly left her lover drenched in blood after repeatedly wounding his arm and shoulder with the serrated blade.
