A Brooklyn Center woman is accused of stabbing her ex-boyfriend after cutting a hole in his window screen.

Columbia Heights police were called to the 4000 block of Main Street around 10:35 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21, on a report of a stabbing.

When they got there, they found 22-year-old Jazzmin Paris Bragg of Brooklyn Center digging around in a car outside the home, according to the criminal complaint. Police say she had blood on the front of her shirt and pants, so police detained her.

Officers went into the house and found a man with a stab wound on his left shoulder. He was sent to Hennepin County Medical Center via ambulance.

The victim told police he and Bragg spent the day together running errands, but at the end they started arguing and she dropped him off at his house. Later, the victim said he heard noises at the window and saw Bragg cutting the screen, according to the criminal complaint.

The victim went outside to tell Bragg to leave when she allegedly stabbed him in the left shoulder.

Bragg has been charged with second degree assault. If convicted, she faces up to seven years in prison and up to $14,000 in fines.
