Imaginary invaders

Man allegedly stabbed by girlfriend blames home invaders

A Forbestown man who claimed to have been stabbed during a home invasion last weekend was actually attacked by his girlfriend, according to the Butte County Sheriff’s Office.

The stabbing victim told responding officers that four men entered his home early Sunday morning looking for “the stuff” before one of the men stabbed him. After the victim was taken to the hospital, an investigation by deputies revealed there was no attempted robbery and that his girlfriend, 36-year-old Grace Ball (pictured), allegedly stabbed him in the torso during an argument.

Ball was booked into Butte County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia, and a misdemeanor warrant.
