As the man ran away, Tomlin told Alachua County Sheriff’s deputies that she picked up a “shiny object,” which turned out to be a knife, and threw it at the victim, according to the Gainesville Sun. The knife hit the man in the back of the head, causing a laceration. 

The victim also suffered an apparent bite on his chest, according to the Gainesville Sun.

Tomlin was arrested, taken to Alachua County Jail and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
