A spokesperson for the Menlo Park Police Department has confirmed that officers have apprehended a woman who is accused of stabbing a 62 year-old man.
Officers said the two had previously been involved in a romantic relationship; it’s unclear how long ago the personal entanglement was broken off.
Investigators said they were tipped off to the crime by hospital workers after the victim came in to be treated fr multiple stab wounds. After speaking with him, they were able to track down and arrest the alleged attacker.
49 year-old Karen Coats has since been booked into the San Mateo County Jail where she has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and suspicion of domestic violence. Both crimes were charged as felony offenses, they said.
Bail information was not immediately available although it’s believed her bail bonds were set quite high based on the nature and severity of her accused crimes.
