GATESVILLE (December 31, 2013) A Gatesville woman was held Tuesday in the Coryell County Jail after her arrest on a warrant charging aggravated assault with a deadly weapon/family violence, stemming from an incident in which her husband was stabbed.

Johanna Lynne Herrin, 44, turned herself in Monday at the jail.

Her bond was set at $100,000.

Officers were sent at around 4 p.m. Saturday to a home in the 200 block of North 18th Street after a caller reported a man had been stabbed, Gatesville police Chief Nathan Gohlke said in a press release Tuesday.

Officers found the victim and a woman, whom they detained, Gholke said.

The victim told officers his wife stabbed him during an argument, attacking him first with a large butcher knife, which he said he knocked from her hand.

He said he barricaded himself in a bathroom, but said the woman got a smaller knife, broke through the bathroom door and stabbed him in the left arm.

The man, whose name was not released, left the house and ran to a home across the street where he asked a neighbor to call police, Gohlke said.

A Coryell Memorial Hospital ambulance took the victim to the hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries, Gohlke said.

The woman told officers she stabbed her husband in self-defense and was not immediately arrested, but on Monday investigators obtained an arrest warrant.
