After responding to a 911 call from Elm Street on Thursday night, Southampton Village police found an East Hampton woman "bleeding profusely" from her arm and hand — and eventually charged her with a felony.
Det. Sgt. Herman Lamison said Friday that prior to the 911 call at 7:46 p.m., the woman, 23-year-old Amanda M. Re, and her boyfriend had been arguing at his home, and the situation escalated. At one point, Re was locked outside the house, and she sustained lacerations when she broke a glass window to get back inside, Lamison said.
Lamison said Re chased her boyfriend with a kitchen knife, and the boyfriend told police that he barricaded himself in a room to avoid further confrontation.
Southampton Village Volunteer Ambulance took Re to Southampton Hospital. The boyfriend was uninjured, Lamison said.
Re was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, a felony, and second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, both misdemeanors, as well as unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.
