Psychiatrist charged with stabbing woman with sword

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A psychiatrist in northern Kentucky has
been charged with stabbing a woman with a sword in his office.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports that 51-year-old Douglas H. Rank
of Cincinnati was charged with first-degree assault after being
arrested Sunday night. Kenton County Jail records listed Rank as
still in custody Tuesday on $50,000 bond.
Police were called to Rank's office about 7:45 p.m. Police
spokesman Spike Jones says officers found a 32-year-old woman with
stab wounds to the chest. The woman was taken to University
Hospital with serious injuries.
Jones says the relationship between Rank and the woman was
unclear, but police recovered the sword they believe was used in
the attack.
