Police: St. Petersburg woman stabs boyfriend in dispute over car

ST. PETERSBURG — A 22-year-old St. Petersburg woman is accused of stabbing her boyfriend in the back during an ongoing argument over a car Wednesday night.

Police said Deniqua Arquondria Washington, of 2900 Sixth Ave. S, and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Brent Crews, have had a running dispute over who owns a 1994 green Toyota Camry. The title is in Crews' name, but Washington said she bought it and put it in his name because she had a suspended license.

Police gave this account:

About 8 p.m. Wednesday, Crews said he wanted to visit a friend. Washington drove him and their 1-year-old child. As Crews stepped out of the vehicle at his friend's house, Washington accelerated. Crews, who stayed in the vehicle, tried to put the vehicle in park and grab the keys. The couple struggled over the keys. At some point, Washington pulled a knife and stabbed Crews in the back, puncturing his lung.

Crews' friend called 911, and he was hospitalized with injuries not considered life threatening.

Washington was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was being held at the Pinellas County Jail.
