An Oakdale woman could spend up to seven years in prison if found guilty of wielding a knife at her boyfriend, according to charges filed against her.
Danielle Anita Krueger, 22, of Oakdale was recently charged with second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, a felony.
According to the criminal complaint:
Oakdale Police were dispatched to the 6000 block of 52nd Street on Dec. 23 on a report of a man and woman yelling. When an officer arrived they heard a man's and woman's voices coming from inside the residence. When the officer knocked on the door several times the voices stopped talking and no one answered the door.
Later that evening the officer was called back to that location on a report of a domestic between a man and woman.
When the officer returned he spoke with a man who said Krueger, his girlfriend of eight years, hit him in the face and bit his chest, the complaint states.
The man reported that he had been assaulted four or five times before that incident.
The complaint states that during an argument Krueger grabbed a kitchen knife and pointed the blade at the man. As Krueger was allegedly approaching the man with the knife he was able to take the knife away from her, according to the complaint.
The man told police he was afraid and thought she was going to stab him. The complaint says that the man also referred to Krueger as a "knife grabber."
Krueger told police that she punched the man in self-defense and denied having a knife, according to the initial complaint.
A neighbor told officers that he has witnessed Krueger punching the man before and has heard the female yelling and what sounds like the woman "attacking the male," according to the complaint.
If found guilty, Krueger faces up to seven years in prison and paying up to $14,000 in fines. Charges do not indicate a conviction.
