Lorena Banos, 32, of Summerfield is charged with aggravated domestic assault, simple battery and criminal mischief after the fight, which occurred Sunday morning at their home on SE 160 Lane.

Deputies said the boyfriend told them he returned to the home he shares with Banos to get some of his belongingsĀ  when she started verbally assaulting him and grabbed a 7-inch kitchen style knife. According to the report, Banos walked outside and punctured all four tires on her boyfriend's car, flattening the tires.

Banos then threw a brick at the victim, but he told deputies he was able to move out of the way.

When deputies arrived, Banos told the deputies "Yeah, I slashed all his (expletive) tires," according to the report. She was subsequently arrested and taken to Marion County Jail.
