A WOMAN allegedly broke into a house and attacked her coworker's sleeping husband with a machete so she could run away with his wife.
Alana J Gibson, 27, of Venice, Florida, is now facing charges of attempted murder, armed burglary, battery and fleeing to elude.
Gibson fled the home after Sarasota County deputies responded just past midnight on Sunday.
The woman worked with the man's wife and broke into the couple's residence and attacked the man when he was asleep, deputies said.
Witnesses told investigators that Gibson strangled the man's wife as she tried to stop her, according to cops.
She then left the house in a white pickup truck, leading deputies on a car chase where she was apprehended.
Gibson was taken into custody after she drove over devices that were put down by authorities that blew out her ties.
She kept driving until a deputy used his patrol car to spin her truck sideways, according to The Port Charlotte Sun.
Deputies said that investigators found a machete, an ax, a compound bow and several arrows in the couple's house.
During an interview with investigators, Gibson admitted that she planned to kill the man and convince his wife to run away with her.
The victim suffered several lacerations and was taken to hospital where he remained in a stable condition on Monday, the outlet reported.
Gibson remained held without bond on Tuesday at the Sarasota County Correctional Facility, according to online data.
