Police say a 25-year-old South Florida woman pulled an ax on her partner Wednesday morning as the victim was trying to break up with her.
Detectives arrived at the scene to find a woman, identified as Jeanette Alexandra Suarez, of Cutler Bay, on top of the other woman, punching her multiple times.
The victim told authorities that she was trying to end a relationship with Suarez when Suarez became angry and started screaming and throwing items at her.
Authorities said Suarez began destroying items in the kitchen of a home before following the victim outside and attacking her.
The victim was able to call 911. At that point, according to officials, Suarez went back inside the home and came outside armed with an ax that had a 12-inch handle.
Deputies said Suarez struck a pipe outside the home with the ax and struck the rear taillight of a van parked at the residence.
The victim ran away, authorities said.
Authorities said Suarez eventually confronted the victim again without the ax and punched her in the face multiple times.
Suarez was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, battery and property damage.
