LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Lauderdale County man is in the hospital after investigators said the woman he was attacking fought back.

It happened over the weekend at a home on County Road 37 near Killen. The woman left the home and called 911 from a store, telling deputies she stabbed someone.

46-year-old Cletus Richardson faces several charges including domestic violence by strangulation. Investigators said Richardson attacked the woman, hit her in the face, and at one point started to choke her.

The victim said when he threw her to the ground, she grabbed a knife and stabbed him three times and then left.

Richardson was taken to the county jail and later transported to ECM Hospital.
