The wife of a Baltimore police captain was charged yesterday with stabbing and cutting her husband during a domestic dispute that turned violent in the couple's North Baltimore home Monday night.

Jacqueline Greene, 44, called authorities shortly after 10 p.m. and said her husband, Capt. Robert Greene, had been wounded, a police spokeswoman said yesterday.

Officers went to the home on the border of the Mid-Govans and Chinquapin Park/Belvedere neighborhoods to investigate and arrested the captain's wife. Ms. Greene was charged with assault and using a deadly weapon.

She was taken to police headquarters and interviewed by homicide detectives -- who are handling the case because a police officer is involved -- and then taken to the Women's Detention Center. She was released yesterday morning on an unsecured $10,000 bond.

Captain Greene, 44, who works in the Southern District, drove to Union Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Officer Sabrina V. Tapp-Harper, a police spokeswoman, said the captain suffered a puncture wound to his left side and cuts on his right and left cheeks, right ear, the left side of his chin and a 1-inch cut on his left thumb.

The spokeswoman said Ms. Greene was not injured. Police said they found a small, bloodstained knife on a kitchen counter, which they believe is the weapon.

Officer Harper said neither Captain Greene nor his wife made statements to investigators. She said initial reports on the incident do not state why the couple was arguing. Their 12-year-old daughter was home at the time.
