KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A Killeen woman accused of stabbing a man who wrested a gun away from her remains behind bars.

Jolynn Nicole Elcock, 37, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

She was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 bond.

She was arrested after officers responded on March 26 to a report of a fight in progress in the 1100 block of Old FM 440 in Killeen.

When officers arrived, they saw a man holding a gun and Elcock, holding a knife, an arrest warrant affidavit says.

The officer ordered both to drop the weapons, the affidavit says.

The man complied, but Elcock did not let go of the knife until an officer pushed her to the ground, the affidavit says.

During the investigation, the man told officer that when he arrived home from work, he saw Elcock “pounding” on another woman’s car, the affidavit says.

He stopped his car and confronted Elcock who then went to her apartment and returned with a gun, the affidavit says.

He was able to grab the gun, the affidavit says, but then Elcock swung a knife, which hit him in the chin.

When an officer asked Elcock how the man got the cut on his chin and she replied that she “stabbed the sh*t out of him,” the affidavit says.

Forty-five minutes earlier police had responded to the same apartment complex after a resident called 911 and reported that Elcock had thrown a chair and was holding a knife.

The officer found Elock and told her to go inside, the affidavit says.
