ELKO — An Elko woman attacked her boyfriend with a bread knife Monday night after she mistakenly thought it was a spatula.

Rosie Wagner, 39, heard her son being spanked by her boyfriend when she grabbed the bread knife, thinking it was a spatula, and attacked the victim, according to the police report.

The alleged victim said he was disciplining her son for throwing a taco in his face.

Her boyfriend tried to defend himself and disarm her and he sustained lacerations on his chest and torso. During the struggle, Wagner also had suffered cuts to her arm.

 She was treated for her arm lacerations at the Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, battery domestic violence and resisting a public officer.

Her bail was set at $10,774.
