Police: Man stabbed woman over missing money
GONZALES - Deputies accused a Gonzales man of stabbing a woman multiple times during an argument this week about money missing form his residence.
Authorities arrested Gregory Davis, 64, on suspicion of aggravated second-degree battery and false imprisonment Wednesday.
Chief Deputy Tony Bacala said deputies were called to Davis' home on St. Landry Road Tuesday night on a report of a man and woman being stabbed. Deputies said they found a woman with several stab wounds which weren't life-threatening, and said Davis also had several small cuts.
Investigators said Davis told them he and the woman were arguing over some missing money which Davis believed she had taken. During the argument, deputies said the woman grabbed a knife to defend herself from Davis, who locked the door to the residence and wouldn't let her leave. Deputies said Davis charged the woman and hit her with the knife she was holding, and that the woman escaped by breaking a window.
Both Davis and the woman were taken to an area hospital for treatment. Davis was arrested the following day.
