Woman arrested for cutting boyfriend

by WES MAYER

A woman was arrested Monday morning after slicing her boyfriend with a knife.

According to Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough, officers were dispatched to 751 Smokey Road in reference to a domestic dispute. When they arrived, they discovered that the victim, Cesar Velasco, had a 2- to 3-inch laceration on his left shoulder, and that his girlfriend, Ana Maria Arzaguet, was responsible.

Apparently, the two fought earlier at a bar after Velasco was accused by Arzaguet of flirting with other women, Yarbrough said.

The fight continued to their home on Smokey Road where it escalated. Velasco broke some items in the house, and Arzaguet went for the knife.

Arzaguet was charged with aggravated assault with a knife.
