Per the arrest report, when officers arrived, they discovered that the victim had been stabbed twice by his live-in girlfriend, 34-year-old Tina Bluford. The victim was later transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery for his injuries.

During the investigation, officers discovered that the victim has an active protective order against Bluford, prohibiting her from being in contact with him due to a past domestic dispute between the two.
