Woman accused of stabbing man who paid to have sex with her



A Marathon man was stabbed by a woman he paid $100 to have sex with, according to the Monroe Sheriff’s Office.

At about 5 p.m. Monday, as the unidentified man walked out of Walgreens, the woman ran up to him, said “perfect timing,” and stabbed him in the forearm, authorities said.

The two had met the night before at JJ’s Dog House in Marathon. The man told deputies that he paid $100 to sleep with her.

He was taken to Baptist Hospital in Miami-Dade where he was treated with non-life threatening injuries.

Neither of them have been charged, spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

The investigation is ongoing.
