DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach woman was jailed early Friday morning after allegedly attacking a man that she knows, then stabbing herself in the arm. Police say the woman was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

Monica Pantzoulas, according to a police report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, was in or near her condo at 2175 South Ocean Drive late Thursday night when the following events occurred. The narrative is from the police report filed by Delray Beach Police:

“Officers responded to the address in reference to (a male) who said (Monica Pantzoulas) tried to stab him and that she then cut herself with a knife. Upon arrival, several officers made contact with the victim and a minor in their parking lot, while other officers made contact with the intoxicated defendant in the interior hallway near their condo. The male victim stated that he and Monica had been arguing when Monica pushed him face first into a picture on the wall, causing the glass on the picture to break, in turn causing a minor cut to his finger. The victim also stated that the defendant grabbed a knife with an eight inch blade from the kitchen and told the victim that she was going to kill him (and the minor) in another room playing video games.”

The narrative continues: ”While in the hospital, the Monica told hospital staff that the male pushed a knife into her hands and started making her cut her own forearm.” The male was neither arrested nor charged.

Monica Pantzoulas was arrested and charged with ”simple assault — intentionally threaten to do violence,” and ”simple battery.” She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 3:03 a.m. Friday and released on her own recognizance just after 3 p.m. A court date is pending.
