A Chattanooga woman has been charged with attempted murder after police say she stabbed her boyfriend in the neck.

An arrest report says on Tuesday, CPD officers were dispatched to E 26th Street on an aggravated assault call, hearing that a man had been stabbed.

Officers arrived to find blood along the sidewalk outside the home, a man and woman on the porch.

The report says the man's clothes were soaked in blood.

He initially told officers he'd fallen on a knife, but after further questioning he said he'd asked his girlfriend to leave the house. He said during the argument, she stabbed him with a knife. The man was taken to Erlanger to determine how bad his injuries were.

Police say when they detained the suspect, 26-year-old Gwendolyn Calloway, and read her Miranda rights, she told them she didn't understand. After reading them again, she refused to answer questions, and officers said when they asked her for information to identify her, she lied to them more than half a dozen times. Chattanooga Police say they were able to identify Calloway only after speaking with the victim.

Chattanooga Police say that due to the severity of the man's injuries, and Calloway lying to officers, she has been charged with attempted second degree murder and criminal impersonation.

Police say they were unable to find the knife used in the crime.

Calloway has been booked into Hamilton County Jail on $150,000 bond.

Her first court date is set for May 17.
