Woman arrested after allegedly stabbing boyfriend in the back

Victim reportedly required surgery for a significant stab wound to his upper-left back

A 53-year-old woman was arrested Saturday after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend in the upper-left portion of his back.

According to Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Scott Wilson, deputies were called to The Reserve at Bucklin Hill, an apartment complex in Silverdale, to investigate an alleged stabbing. According to Wilson, the victim suffered a significant stab wound injury and first aid procedures were initiated on contact, which included the application of a chest seal patch, while awaiting arrival of Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue to transport the victim to the hospital for surgery.

After KCSO obtained a search warrant to enter the apartment, a kitchen knife and various items such as blood-soaked clothing and towels were discovered. A jacket was also found with a slash in the upper-left back area, corresponding to the possible location of the stabbing, according to a certificate of probable cause.

According to court documents, deputies noted that Felicia K. Brosious appeared to be under the influence of alcohol as a deputy reported the scent of intoxicants emanating from her. Deputies also noticed that she appeared to have a cut and swelling to her lip, but did not require aid.

According to the statement of probable cause, Brosious told deputies that she stabbed the victim in the back in self-defense, as he was walking toward the doorway of the apartment. Brosious said she thought the victim was closing the door in order to assault her further.
