A woman stabbed her boyfriend Sunday afternoon in self-defense, Madison police said.

Officers said the 39-year-old man was shoving the woman around 4:30 p.m. inside their Churchill Drive home when she stabbed him in the torso.

The woman provided potentially life-saving aid to the man before paramedics arrived, and he was taken to a hospital, according to a release.

When the man is released from the hospital, he will face a charge of domestic disorderly conduct.
