WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -

A 43-year-old woman had to have a knife removed from the back of her head at a Wichita hospital after a late-night altercation.

The Wichita Eagle reports the woman and a 49-year-old man told police that someone pointed a handgun at them late Friday at an unknown location.

They said the man pulled out a pocket knife to defend himself, but the suspect grabbed it and threw it at the woman.

Wichita Police Sgt. Ron Hunt said the knife became imbedded in the back of the woman's head. She walked into Via Christi Hospital with the knife still stuck in her head, and doctors were able to remove it.
