33-year-old Koree Brooks had an altercation with her boyfriend, Devinceo Pruitt, at her Antioch Pike apartment late March 19th. Pruitt alerted the authorities, advising that he and Brooks had been arguing on and off all day. Pruitt stated that it escalated when Brooks grabbed a utility knife and swung it at him several times, cutting his arm. Pruitt said he punched her in the face after she cut him. Officers noticed he had a severe laceration on his left bicep, which showed obvious disfigurement. Brooks told them that Pruitt punched and strangled her, so she used the knife in self-defense. Brooks had a minor scrape on her neck and redness in her nose, but there was no visible bruising during the interview.  Brooks was taken into custody for aggravated assault.
