An officer responded to a call about a stabbing on Constitution Road. A 48-year-old man took the officer inside his apartment. The man's girlfriend was standing in the kitchen. There was blood on the floor and several blood-soaked rags and towels.

The officer asked the girlfriend, Where were you stabbed? The girlfriend pulled down her pants and showed her buttocks. "There was a stab wound that went through the bottom of her right butt cheek and out the top of the butt cheek," the officer wrote.

The man turned over a large bowie knife. He said his girlfriend fell on the knife.

The officer wrote: "(The man and the girlfriend) went out last night and got drunk and when they got home this morning, they were 'playing around' with the knife during some type of kinky sex act. According to (the girlfriend), they have kinky sex a lot. This time (the girlfriend) was holding the knife as (the man) was holding her, standing up, having sex. (The man) lost his balance and fell, still holding onto (the girlfriend) and (the girlfriend) was still holding onto the knife. As they fell (the girlfriend) reached back to catch herself and as they hit the floor — she stabbed herself in the buttocks."

No charges filed. The girlfriend went to the hospital, and the man went with her.

On John Wesley Dobbs Avenue a 22-year-old man said he was in his apartment, with his girlfriend and their two-month-old son, when a can of pepper spray accidentally went off in his face.

The girlfriend's story was a tad different: The girlfriend said she and the man got in a spat about sex. She said the man got extremely upset when she went into the bedroom to "take care of it herself." He followed her into the bedroom and tried to choke her, she said. Then, he tried to crush her head with his hands, she said. So she sprayed his face with pepper spray. This incident occurred in front of their infant son.

The girlfriend had no visible injuries. The boyfriend was arrested for simple battery and cruelty to children.

In Midtown, an undercover officer saw someone standing on the corner of 5th and Juniper streets. The officer wrote, "At first, I thought the person was a female (wearing leopard-print tights, high-heel shoes, with long hair and a purse)." Turns out, it was a man dressed as a woman.

As the officer's car stopped, the female impersonator walked up and asked for a ride home. The officer said he didn't have much gas and needed money for gas. The female impersonator offered to give oral sex in exchange for a ride home.

The female impersonator, a 27-year-old from Decatur, was arrested for prostitution.
