A Minden woman is recovering after being stabbed multiple times in the stomach.
Around 9 p.m. Thursday, Webster Parish Sheriff deputies responded to a 911 call in the 2000 block of Louisiana Highway 531. The victim was found bleeding from multiple stab wounds in the torso area and transported to University Health in Shreveport with life-threatening injuries.
The victim told deputies her boyfriend, 38-year-old Tyrone Winzer, had stabbed her multiple times while the couple were arguing, according to the arrest affidavit.
The couple’s landlord reportedly witnessed Winzer arguing with the victim and told deputies the victim could be heard screaming, “he is stabbing me” before running to their house bleeding.
A second witness told deputies he witnessed Winzer and the victim arguing. He told deputies that after he and the victim left the home, Winzer ran after them and stabbed the victim multiple times, according to the report.
Deputies took Winzer into custody after locating him at his home. During the arrest, deputies reportedly saw suspected crack cocaine lying on the living room floor and bedroom Winzer was found in. A bag containing a large rock of suspected crack cocaine was also reportedly found in the yard of the home, along with Winzer’s keys, change and house shoe.
Winzer was taken to Minden Medical Center after being arrested for a cut on his left leg, which appeared to be self inflected, due to the angle of the cut, according to the report.
He reportedly told deputies that the victim stabbed him and “must have stabbed herself.” He also reportedly told deputies the suspected drugs belonged to the victim.
Winzer, who is currently on parole until 2025, was arrested on attempted second-degree murder, possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute and felony domestic abuse battery.
He was transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correction Center.
