ADDISON TOWNSHIP, MI – A 76-year-old Oxford man is fortunate that he was not injured more than he was when his 57-year-old wife attacked him with a box cutter on Tuesday, November 27th, 2018.

Deputies conducted their investigation and subsequently transported the suspect to the substation to speak with a Detective. The suspect was then transported to the Oakland County Jail where she was lodged. The victim refused medical treatment at the scene and agreed to seek medical treatment on his own.
