Des Moines woman stabbed


 A 42-year-old man has been accused of stabbing a Des Moines woman.

Police say Frankie Johnson, of Des Moines, was arrested Monday.

   Police say 35-year-old Angela Parks is in fair condition at Mercy Medical Center, where she's being treated for seven wounds.

   Officers say Parks escaped an attack by Johnson and found refuge at a neighbor's home. She told officers that Johnson was still in her home.

   Officers say Johnson refused to leave Parks' home and told officers he'd kill himself if they didn't leave.

   Officers eventually forced their way into the home. They say they used two stun gun shots to make him drop knives he was holding to his own throat.

   Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
