A Columbia Heights man was charged with attempted murder on Friday after he allegedly stabbed his girlfriend over the weekend.

Antonio Robinson, 39, was arrested on Feb. 19 after officers were called to a home on the 3700 block of Tyler Street in Columbia Heights. At the house police found a woman with an apparent stab-wound, according to Kare 11.

Robinson was arrested on charges of attempted murder and assault, the Pioneer Press reported.

The woman was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment. She remains hospitalized, recovering from 12 stab wounds and "slash-like" injuries, according to the Pioneer Press.

Kare 11 reported that the victim told police she was stabbed after she told Robinson their relationship was over.

Robinson told police that the victim and he had been "poking" each other with the knife, the Pioneer Press said.
