Palma.—A young South American woman was arrested in Palma yesterday after stabbing her ex-boyfriend who apparently tried to rape her in front of her four and five-year-old children.

According to sources close to the case, the victim, who has been served with a restraining order, the attacker slipped into the young woman's flat in calle Medico Jose Darder yesterday morning and allegedly tried to sexually assault his ex-partner.

However, as she tried to fight her assailant off, she grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the shoulder.
The alarm was raised by neighbours just after 11am on hearing the commotion coming from inside the apartment.
When the national Police reached the scene of what they thought was a case of domestic violence, the woman was very nervous while her attacker was nursing his stab wound.

The alleged attacker was eventually taken to hospital while the young woman was taken into custody for questioning.
Police were waiting to question the ex-boyfriend last night once he had recovered from his injuries.
