HOUSTON – Police on Wednesday were looking for a woman accused of attacking her boyfriend with a broken glass bottle and a knife.

Denise Ferguson, 46, is charged with aggravated assault of a family member.

According to investigators, she and her boyfriend of eight months got into a fight on February 16, 2012, at their apartment in the 500 block of El Dorado.

The boyfriend told investigators he wanted to go visit family in another state, and Ferguson didn’t want him to.

He said when he went into the bedroom to pack up some clothes, Ferguson came and hit him in the back with a glass bottle of alcohol, shattering the bottle.

He said she then cut him in the gut with the broken end of the bottle.

The boyfriend said he tried to leave, but then Ferguson grabbed a knife from the kitchen and started swinging.

The victim sustained lacerations on both forearms and his left hand before he could get out of the apartment and to a nearby business to call police.

The victim was treated at Memorial Hermann for his injuries.

Charges were filed against Ferguson on February 17, but as of February 22, she was not in custody.
