Woman Allegedly Stabs Boyfriend in Eye with Needle for Looking at Other Women

A Miami woman, Sandra Jimenez, 44, was arrested after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend in the eye with a needle intended for their dogs’ rabies vaccinations. The incident was reported to the Miami Police Department, who responded to a call from a residence on Northeast 62nd Street around 10 p.m. on a Saturday.

The victim, who has been in a relationship with Jimenez for eight years, reported that the incident occurred during an argument about him allegedly looking at other women. He was lying on the couch when Jimenez reportedly jumped on him and stabbed him in the eye with the two rabies needles.

The victim’s right eyelid was pierced in the attack. After realizing what she had done, Jimenez left the scene. The victim then contacted the police, and paramedics transported him to a nearby hospital. He was able to provide a description of Jimenez and the vehicle she was driving.

Police later found Jimenez asleep in her car near the crime scene. She reportedly told detectives that her boyfriend’s injury was self-inflicted. However, she was arrested and charged with aggravated battery.

Following her arrest, Jimenez was taken to jail. She has since posted bail and is currently under house arrest. Her arraignment hearing is scheduled for December 26, and she has entered a plea of not guilty. Requests for comment from her court-appointed attorney have not been returned.
