A Hilton Head woman was charged after authorities said she stabbed her boyfriend with a kitchen knife three times following an argument.
The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday charged Crystal Cordoba, 34, of Hilton Head Island with one count of possession of a knife in commission of a violent crime and one count of domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
Both charges are felonies, according to S.C. law.
On Sept. 26, Cordoba and her boyfriend of one month got into an argument at Kroger. He left for his apartment on Folly Field Road and told her not to come over, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.
The boyfriend told police she sneaked in through the back sliding door and restarted the argument. He said he was trying to restrain her from hitting him when Cordoba stabbed him with the kitchen knife.
The report said she ran away.
Deputies found the man with three stab wounds and a lot of blood on the floor. He has since recovered and was released from the hospital mid-week, according to Maj. Bob Bromage.
Bromage said Cordoba met with investigators at the Hilton Head office and was arrested on two warrants on Thursday afternoon.
A little over a month prior to the incident, Cordoba was charged with domestic violence in the third degree, a misdemeanor, according to records.
Cordoba is being held at the Beaufort County Detention Center on two bonds of $25,000 each, jail records show.
