A St. Petersburg woman is facing a felony charge after police say she stabbed her boyfriend with surgical scissors while he was in a hospital bed.
Taniea D. Sherrod, 18, is charged with aggravated battery with a weapon after the incident, which occurred Nov. 19. An arrest report lists the address of the incident as 701 Sixth St. S in St. Petersburg, which is the address of Bayfront Health St. Petersburg.
According to the report, Sherrod’s boyfriend was in a hospital bed at about 10:30 p.m. that day. Sherrod was with him and started arguing with him over “suspected infidelity,” the report states.
Sherrod became “irate” when her boyfriend wouldn’t let her see his phone. She then “picked up a pair of surgical scissors that were in the hospital room and began stabbing the victim in the right thigh causing multiple puncture wounds,” the report states.
