Facial stabbing, assault with car alleged in Clearfield
CLEARFIELD — Police arrested a Clearfield woman on Wednesday after she allegedly sliced up her ex-boyfriend’s face with a broken beer bottle, threatened a woman with the jagged glass and hit two men with a car.
Officers responded to a report of a stabbing in the 1100 east block of 1150 South after midnight, finding that the man was at a local hospital being treated for multiple and extensive lacerations on his face.
The confrontation began in front of a home where the woman, Lydia Christensen Flores, 22, was with another man. The ex-boyfriend and Christensen-Flores argued and then the two men began fighting, according to a Clearfield Police Department arrest affidavit. The man said he began fighting the ex-boyfriend because he feared he would harm Christensen Flores.
Police said Christensen Flores allegedly punched the ex-boyfriend with her fists, broke a beer bottle and slashed his face. She also allegedly jumped into the man’s car and threatened a woman in the passenger seat with the bottle, then put the car in gear and drove into the two men fighting.
Christensen Flores allegedly admitted breaking a beer bottle on the ground and that she stabbed the ex-boyfriend with it because she feared he would harm her or the other man, according to the affidavit. She said she remembers getting into the car but blacked out at that point.
The suspect was booked into the Davis County Jail in Farmington on suspicion of second-degree felony aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury, third-degree felony aggravated assault and first-degree felony aggravated kidnapping. A misdemeanor criminal mischief charge was added because Christensen Flores allegedly damaged the ex-boyfriend’s car with keys before she got in.
