If your new girlfriend's name is Latina Carr, you may want to take our advice and not give your phone number to another woman.
That's because her last boyfriend was hiding in a bathroom at 6 a.m. yesterday, telling police Carr just stabbed him for allegedly getting a call from another woman.
Gilbert police got the ring at 5:57 a.m. Sunday, as the 35-year-old man said Carr had just stabbed him in the back with a knife.
Police say the man reported that he had locked himself in Carr's bathroom and would be "taking refuge" there until the cops showed up.
Police showed up and arrested Carr, 39, without incident.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, the stabbing was the result of Carr's allegedly getting a phone call from another woman -- who we'll assume wasn't his mother.
The man refused to call the woman back at Carr's request so Carr grabbed her boyfriend's phone to try to call the woman back.
Carr's boyfriend wasn't about to let that happen. They played tug-of-war with the phone until Carr went to the kitchen and came back double-fisting a pair of knives.
According to the court documents, Carr banged on the bathroom door after her boyfriend barricaded himself in there, as she shouted that her boyfriend better "come out swinging."
At some point during this, she started stabbing the door with the butcher knife.
The stabbing victim was taken to a hospital, but his injuries weren't life-threatening.
Carr was jailed on charges of aggravated assault, criminal damage, and aggravated assault.
Under a field of choices for "domestic-violence issues" in the court documents filed by police, the box titled "Control/ownership/jealousy issues" was checked, as well as prior instances of domestic violence.
