32-year-old Toya Canty was jailed on May 16th for stabbing her boyfriend in the abdomen after an argument at their home on Eldos Trace Circle. When police arrived, Isaiah Jackson was in critical condition; they performed first aid until he was life-flighted to Vanderbilt Hospital. Canty was immediately taken into custody and questioned at the precinct. She told police that she and Jackson were arguing, and he followed her around after asking to be left alone because she was upset. She claims he then pushed her to the ground and stomped her face with his work boots. Officers only observed a small cut and a ripped shirt strap but no injuries corresponding to Canty’s statement.
