St. Petersburg woman charged with attempted murder of boyfriend

ST. PETERSBURG — A 39-year-old woman was accused of trying to kill her boyfriend Tuesday night with what police think was a broken bottle.

Theresa Ann Brown, 39, remains in jail without bond on aggravated battery and attempted first-degree murder charges. Police say she cut her boyfriend, Tommie Lee Allison Jr., 39, several times across the face and upper body.

The slashing stemmed from an argument the couple had around 10:45 p.m. after Brown said she saw Allison engaging with another woman at a local convenience store.

The couple went back to a friend's home and began to fight outside the apartments at 674 22nd Ave. S, police said.

Allison's son, DeAngelo Church, 21, got between the two and broke up the fight, police said.

Allison was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was treated for his injuries. They were not life threatening, said police spokesman Mike Puetz.

Brown, who suffered some cuts to her hands during the attack, was taken to St. Anthony's Hospital before being transported to jail.

Although it was unclear what Brown had in her hand at the time of the attack, Puetz said witnesses reported hearing a bottle break before she leapt at Allison.

Brown was arrested in May and charged with aggravated domestic assault.
