GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police have charged a man with attempted murder after he allegedly injected his girlfriend with hair dye and ammonia.

Thirty-nine-year-old James W. Patterson of Millsboro has been charged with numerous other offenses and is being held on $132,000 cash bond.

Troopers say about 1 a.m. Tuesday, Patterson and his girlfriend were involved in an altercation when Patterson hit the woman in the face several times.

Police say he produced a hypodermic syringe filled with hair dye and ammonia and injected the substance into the woman’s hand and neck.

The woman was flown to Christiana Hospital and is in critical condition.

    To paraphrase Norman Mailer, “As long as you use a needle, there is still some love left.” ( Mailer said knife, after he had stabbed his wife)
