APD: Woman Reportedly Says She Stabbed Her Boyfriend Who Assaulted Young Children

A domestic violence situation in Anderson ended with a man suffering a stab wound. Anderson Police were called at 7PM Thursday night to Briarwood Apartments by a woman who said she and her children had been assaulted by her boyfriend, 27-year-old Bryon Keith Ames. While en route, officers learned of a stabbing victim at the nearby 7-11 on North Street. That turned out to be Ames, who was uncooperative and would not tell officers about how he got stabbed. He was transported to a hospital as officers interviewed the woman. She said Ames had struck her 3-year-old in the back of the head, knocking the child to the ground, and also threw a vacuum cleaner at a one-year-old. She said she stabbed Ames in defense of her children and herself. Ames fled the hospital before officers got there, but he was found and booked into jail.
