Woman accused of stabbing man in Dayton, fleeing from police at 110 mph

A woman is facing charges after she reportedly stabbed a man in the arm early Sunday and fled from police at 110 mph in Dayton.

Bond was set at $75,0000 for Danielle Boykins, 38, during her Monday afternoon arraignment in Dayton Municipal Court for felonious assault, failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer, two counts of aggravated burglary and a misdemeanor count of domestic violence.

Crews responded around 2:10 a.m. to a stabbing in the 60 block of Knecht Drive, according to the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center.

An affidavit filed by a Dayton police detective said Boykins forced her way into a man’s home and refused to leave.

Boykins “smashed items in the apartment and kicked the air conditioning unit out of the second story window,” according to Dayton Municipal Court records.

The man called 911 after she grabbed a knife, swung it and left a 4- to 5-inch cut in his forearm, the affidavit said. She left while he was on the phone with a dispatcher, the document stated.

Officers found Boykins driving with her window down along Knecht Drive and ordered her to stop. She refused and fled at 110 mph with police pursuing her, according to court records.

Boykins eventually pulled over in front of a garage to a medical office building on North Main Street in Harrison Twp., where she was taken into custody.

She is held in the Montgomery County Jail and is next due in court June 14.
