A York City woman is accused of stabbing her boyfriend in Spring Garden Township earlier this month, according to police.

Perez, 27, of the 800 block of East Poplar Street, is charged with aggravated assault, a felony, and misdemeanor offenses of simple assault and lying to authorities.

Police were called to the area for an unknown problem regarding a man outside a home. When officers arrived, Shepherd was lying on the sidewalk in a pool of blood, according to police.

Perez, police said, held a shirt against Shepherd's back, where he was stabbed. She told police she did not know how Shepherd was stabbed, court documents state.

Police said she was contrite and wanted to take responsibility for her actions.
