Christina Ann MacCornack said Jacobs had the knife and was trying to harm himself so she hugged him and he was accidentally stabbed
A Florida couple is behind bars after allegedly telling police a false story about a black man with a Mohawk stabbing them outside their home to cover up a domestic dispute over drugs.
Christina Ann MacCornack and her boyfriend Christopher Thomas Jacobs were arrested Monday in Avon Park after MacCornack called police to report a stabbing.
A bulletin from the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office, said the 28-year-old Christina MacCornack told officers that she and Jacobs were sitting on their front porch when a black man with a Mohawk walked up to them and stabbed her in the leg and Jacobs in the stomach.
After questioning the pair about the alleged incident, police quickly realized they weren’t telling the truth and MacCornack, who had wounds on her leg and hands, had been wielding the knife.
The Sheriff’s department said Jacobs, 27, had been released from the hospital Monday after nearly being electrocuted while changing a lightbulb, told officers he returned home and got into an argument with his girlfriend over drugs.
Stabbing victim Christopher Thomas Jacobs claims he was trying to stop a naked MacCornack from streaking out
Jacobs said she tried to run out of the house naked so he dragged her back inside, and she grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the stomach.
MacCornack, however, told a completely different story, alleging that Jacobs had the knife and was trying to harm himself so she hugged him and he was accidentally stabbed.
Police said MacCornack had bruises on her legs and hands and had been punched in the face in course of the altercation.
Since detectives couldn’t figure out the sequence of events and it was a domestic dispute, both people were arrested.
MacCornack was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Jacobs was charged with felony domestic battery and is being held on a $1,000 bond.
