70-year-old man charged with beating wife, throwing knife
Donald Bostic, of 2013 Ormond Blvd., was coming back from visiting friends and family with his 66-year-old wife and son when the incident occurred. After Bostic and his wife got into an argument, Bostic began punching her in the face and back while their son drove, according to Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange.
When the couple arrived home, Bostic continued to assault her, LaGrange says, and when they got inside the home Bostic threw a large hunting knife at her back.
“It left a pretty nasty cut,” LaGrange said.
At that point, the woman ran into a closet to hide and waited for her son and husband to leave before calling police, according to the arrest report.
“When officers arrived at the scene they saw blood splatter on the driveway and blood droplets throughout the house,” LaGrange said. “While the officers were talking to the victim, the husband and son returned home and (Bostic) was arrested.”
The victim was treated at the scene and was transported to East Jefferson Hospital to receive additional treatment for her injuries.
“She was bleeding pretty badly,” LaGrange said. “We deal with incidents like this, but this was unusual because of the age of those involved. Usually, people that age either talk these things out or they don’t talk at all.”
