Lover’s wake-up call leads to throat slit at­tack

Midweek Sport - - CLASSIC SPORT -

A BOOZED-UP woman is fac­ing at­tempted murder charges over claims she slit her boyfriend’s throat just mo­ments af­ter wak­ing him up and ask­ing if he loved her.

Ac­cord­ing to the 39-year-old vic­tim, he told his lover Dawn Peel that he did love her, to which she replied: “This is the last day you’ll see my eyes.”

He says she then used a large knife to slice his neck “as if she was slaugh­ter­ing a goat or a cow”.

But he was able to fend her off and make his es­cape.

Once the man was out of the apart­ment, he called the cops and was taken to hospi­tal.

He had surgery on the 5.5-inch gash, which re­quired 23 stitches.

When po­lice ar­rived at the apart­ment in St Paul, Min­nesota, they found 50-year-old Peel com­pletely nude, with wet hair and cov­ered in blood.

Of­fi­cers say she had al­co­hol on her breath.

Po­lice say Peel has de­nied at­tack­ing her boyfriend and claimed she had been as­saulted by him.
