— A Rock Hill woman accused of stabbing her ex-boyfriend with a pair of scissors on Monday told police she thought the blades were a comb that she had been using while doing her hair, according to a police report.

Police responded to a Southland Drive home at about 11:42 p.m. when a man, 23, reported that he had been stabbed, the report states. The man told police that Miranda Brown, his “ex-girlfriend,” whom he lives with and had been in a relationship with within the last four years, angrily confronted him because he did not call and tell her his location.

When he returned home and the two were sitting down on the couch, Brown, 31, became irate and punched at his legs with a pair of scissors, the report states. She had the scissors, the man told police, because she had been cutting her hair. Police photographed the cuts to the man’s legs.

The man became angry with her, she told officers, and began calling her names, the report states. While on the couch, she told police the man became belligerent, grabbed her hair and pushed her head down. That’s when she hit him with the scissors, thinking they were actually a comb she had been using. During the ensuing scuffle, she told police the man stepped on her right big toe, causing it to bleed.

Police photographed Brown, but did not note in the report whether they noticed any signs of injury on her body. Police found probable cause to arrest Brown, charging her with criminal domestic violence.
