Atlantic City woman allegedly stabbed boyfriend
An Atlantic City woman was arrested for allegedly stabbing her boyfriend in the back Monday morning. Police were called to an apartment in the 100 block of the Boardwalk just before 8 a.m. Officers arrived to find a 58-year-old man with a stab wound to the back, Sgt. Kevin Fair said. The man, whose name was not released, was taken to the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center's City Campus with an injury not considered life-threatening. Officers Martina Martin, Christopher Inman and Zayon Pitts found the suspect inside the apartment. Antonella Bottaro, 56, was charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon. There were blood stains on the bed comforter and punctures to the mattress and couch cushions. Bottaro was taken to the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
Note: The Atlantic County Justice Facility no longer provides mugshots to the media, citing the Atlantic County prosecutor’s order. The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office says it’s part of the Attorney General’s Guidelines. There is no such guideline, according to the Attorney General’s Office, but they have told these offices for years that they should not release any photos that appear to be mugshots.
