From the Xtra site this afternoon:
"A Hamilton man has had 300 stitches in a leg after being attacked by his female partner with a craft knife. The incident, in suburban Dinsdale in Hamilton West about 11am yesterday, has left police asking people who feel under pressure at home to seek help before something more tragic happens. The 48-year-old man had to be taken to Waikato Hospital where he required 300 stitches to his right leg to close the wound that ran from his right thigh to down below his knee.A 23-year-old woman was arrested and was to appear in Hamilton District Court today, charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm."
WTF - a CRAFT KNIFE???!!!
