A neighbor who called 911 said the man broke down the door to his girlfriend’s apartment and that the woman hit him on the head with a hammer and a can of Chef Boyardee pasta. Later, the caller said she saw the woman with a knife.

A call log stated that the woman ran out of the apartment after she said she stabbed the man with her eyes closed and kept screaming that he’s dead. The woman also suffered stab wounds and was treated at Kettering Health - Dayton, formerly Grandview Medical Center, according to the call log.

The couple had been involved in a prior domestic violence call but the woman did not want to pursue charges, Johns said.

The stabbing is under investigation, and findings will be reviewed by the county prosecutor’s office, he said.
