Wilton Police Officer Ethan Kyes wrote in an affidavit that Dones said he and the woman were fighting over his phone, that she threw a table at him and kicked him in the stomach before he hit her with the machete, which the officer wrote caused a “large wound” that was believed to reach bone, according to the Daily Bulldog.

The fight took place before 6 a.m. Saturday, the publication reported. Dones was reportedly taken to Franklin County Detention Center.
