Deputies said a Spartanburg woman was seen chasing her boyfriend around with a knife after the two got into a fight on Wednesday.

Spartanburg County deputies were called to an apartment complex on Leland Street after the woman had chased after the man, trying to stab him, according to a sheriff's office report.

The report stated the victim came over to have dinner with the woman and her family, but she had been drinking and began screaming at him. Deputies said the couple had gotten into a fight during dinner and she picked up a knife and tried to stab him.

The man ran out the door and the woman, identified as 43-year-old Carlette Harden, chased after him, according to deputies. The two got into a scuffle at one point and the victim was able to wrestle away the knife, deputies said.

Deputies said they were able to catch up with the man, who ran a half-mile up the street to a KFC restaurant to get away.

When investigators spoke with Harden, deputies said she denied having had a knife or getting into a fight with her boyfriend. According to the report, several witnesses said they saw Harden chase after the man and deputies said they saw her yelling at someone who was running away as they arrived.

According to the report, deputies said they found a pile of food, broken dishes, and a wig in front of the apartment where witnesses reported seeing the fight between Harden and the victim.

Deputies said the man had a cut to his nose and hand, but was not sure when he was injured and did not want medical attention.

Deputies arrested Harden, charging her with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
