NORCROSS — A Norcross woman was arrested Saturday after police say she repeatedly stabbed and sliced her mother’s boyfriend with a box cutter in August.

Gwinnett County police responded to the Oakbrooke Point Apartments on Pirkle Road on Aug. 31, finding the male victim with “several stab wounds to his back as well as ... visible slash wounds to his chest and back of his head,” officials said.

According to the police report, the victim said he had been in a fight with six people, and identified a nearby apartment where two of them were located.

Once there, officers interviewed 19-year-old Vanessa Biodun Sule, who reportedly said she had “approached (the victim) and began to argue with him over the fact he was cheating on her mother.”

Sule told police that the victim had punched her in the face, and, at that point, “the fight was on.” She did not admit to stabbing him.

Because the victim also declined to identify who had stabbed him, he, Sule and the other man in the apartment were all arrested and charged with affray.

At the end of September, “Sule was positively identified by the victim as one who attacked him,” and warrants were taken out for her arrest, Gwinnett County police spokesman Cpl. Brian Kelly said.

According to those warrants, Sule “seriously disfigured” the victim by “slicing and cutting the victim while the accused told (another man) to ‘kill him, kill him.’”

Sule was located on Saturday, arrested and charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery, both felonies. As of Monday evening, she remained in Gwinnett County Jail in lieu of $55,400 bond, records show.
