Woman who stabbed boyfriend because he had Tinder made 911 call

A woman who stabbed her boyfriend repeatedly with a samurai sword after she discovered he was using Tinder made a desperate call to 911 for help moments later.

A recording of the call captured Emily Javier, who was hysterical, telling an emergency dispatcher: ‘I just stabbed my boyfriend.

‘I think he’s dead. You need to hurry.’

When police arrived at their Camas, Washington, home, Javier’s boyfriend Alex Lovell, 29, was found still alive with multiple stab wounds and was rushed to hospital. Javier was arrested on a first degree attempted murder charge.

Alex Lovell, 29, was left with life threatening injuries when he was attacked by his girlfriend Emily Javier on Saturday

Chilling audio of her 911 call, recorded Javier, 30, repeating ‘he’s dead’ over and over again while crying hysterically. 

The dispatcher then asked Javier where she stabbed him.

‘Everywhere! Everywhere!’ she replied. 

‘Where is the knife?’ the dispatcher asked, to which Javier responded that: ‘I used a sword!’

The dispatcher repeatedly asked Javier to go into the bedroom where Lovell was lying, bleeding, to check if he was still breathing and help tend his wounds.

But Javier wasn’t able to bring herself to check on him.

‘I cant go in there, I can’t go in there!’ she told the dispatcher. ‘There’s too much blood!’

Lovell is already making an incredible recovery and is pictured sitting up in a wheelchair in hospital. Slash wounds are visible across his neck, and his arms are covered in bandages

Javier, who began screaming incomprehensibly and begging the 911 dispatcher to ‘please help him’ became so emotional that the dispatcher had to ask her to take a breath and keep calm before the cops and first responders arrived.

‘I need for you to try and stay calm for me,’ the dispatcher said. ‘They’re on their way as fast as they can.’ 

Cops arrived at the home in Northeast Garfield Avenue, Camas, Washington, just minutes after Javier called 911 at 1.54am on Saturday morning.

Officers found a gruesome scene in the bedroom where blood was splattered up the walls and Lovell curled up in a ball with life threatening injuries.  He is expected to survive although doctors are still assessing the extent of the nerve and muscle damage.

There were so many slash wounds, police can’t say for sure how many times he was cut.

Javier told police that she’d planned the attack for a week after finding dating app Tinder on his phone.

According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by The Oregonian, other signs that he was cheating included scratches on his back and red hair she found in the drain of their shower, she said. 

The woman said that after making the discoveries, she went to the mall to purchase the weapon.

On Saturday at around 9pm, he came home and ignored her, she said.

They went to bed and once the lights were out, she reached for the weapon which she had taped to her side of the bed along with two other knives. 

Javier told police she brought it down on his throat in an effort to murder him. 

‘I was trying to kill him,’ she said.  

During her police interview, she said she wanted to kill her boyfriend in his sleep and that in addition to his suspected cheating, she disliked how much he played video games. 

Lovell is now recovering from his wounds and has shared photos of himself sitting up in a wheelchair, surrounded by his friends and family.

‘Got to go on a small adventure outside today! Six days after attack and I’m able to stand and sit (with a little help). Let’s goooo!’ he wrote on Facebook.

He even joked he was getting ready to ‘drop some hot bars’ about Samurais.

Meanwhile, his girlfriend is charged with first degree attempted murder and is being held on a $350,000 bond. It’s not clear how long they have been together.
