MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis woman is fighting for her life after being stabbed multiple times in Orange Mound.
It happened around midnight in the 2800 block of Choctaw Avenue.
Officers said when they arrived on the scene they heard a woman calling for help inside the home. They opened the door to find the woman on the floor bleeding from multiple stab wounds. She was rushed to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
As police were investigating they found a bloody knife wrapped in a towel on the kitchen counter.
Several minutes later the victim’s boyfriend Romillo Acosta Gonzalez and his estranged wife arrived at the home. He told police he was out partying at an unknown location with friends he could not name.
When questioned by police his estranged wife told officers that the suspect arrived at her home upset, saying he had just been involved in a fight with his girlfriend. He told her she needed to follow him back to his place to get his other vehicle.
An officer collected a sample of blood that was found on the suspect’s shoe before he was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault.
Online records show that Gonzalez is no stranger to police. His criminal history dates back to the mid-nineties with previous charges of domestic violence, kidnapping and assaults.
He’s expected to go before a judge Tuesday morning.
