MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach Police responded to a 3rd Ave. apartment Tuesday in reference to a woman who stabbed a man over a dinner argument. Police reports say, a 4-year-old boy was in the room at the time.

Officers spoke to the suspect and asked her what happened, she said she was making dinner, came outside and had an argument with the victim. The victim said the suspect was drinking and making dinner, he told her to stop making dinner because she burns food when she drinks and she was coughing on the food.

After a few plates of food were made, the victim told the suspect he wasn't eating it since she was coughing on the food and drinking while cooking. The suspect then went into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and came after the victim. The victim was sitting on the couch and saw her come with the blade pointing toward him; he tried to block the knife, but she stabbed his left wrist and walked back to the kitchen, according to police reports.

The victim took their 4-year-old son out of the room and called 911. Police spoke to the son and he said, "mommy hurt daddy with a big knife."

Syreeta Angela Brown , 34-years-old, was served a warrant in the Myrtle Beach jail.
