A 70-year-old Waukesha man was stabbed in his left shoulder after he offered a local woman $2 in quarters as payment in a sex-for-pay transaction turned violent.
The prostitution act gone bad happened about 7:30 p.m. June 11 in the 900 block of Pleasant Avenue, according to Waukesha County court records. The wound was not life threatening.

The stabbing victim summoned police to the Pleasant Avenue home. Blood was dripping down his arm and body onto his bare chest when he answered the door. He was unsteady, possibly to because of blood loss, according to the complaint.
Eubanks was arrested near the home based on the stabbing victim's description of her.
Hospital doctors found multiple fresh cuts on the victim's arm, possibly from the knife attack, along with the stab wound, according to the complaint. Surgery was not required to close the wound.
The victim told police that he and Eubanks agreed to have sex for money in his room. He also offered her a package of edible panties. After they finished, she asked for the money. He stated he didn’t have any, according to the complaint.
She saw money, specifically quarters, in his room, and he agreed to give her $2 in quarters and an alcoholic beverage, according to the complaint
She then noticed a couple of packages of edible panties. He stated these were for other females. She stated she wanted one, but he wouldn’t give her one because they were $9, according to the complaint.
The victim said Eubanks had a knife in her hand. He told police he may have punched her in the face and was then stabbed. She then took one of the packages and left the apartment, according to the complaint. He then called 911.
Responding officers found Eubanks in front of the house and saw the handle of a kitchen knife sticking out of her bra. She said the blade was in the residence because it broke off when the victim fell on it, according to the complaint.
Eubanks confirmed she and the stabbing victim had sex prior to her departure. She said he did not want to give her the panties as agreed upon. She told him she was taking them anyway, according to the complaint.
After she was struck in the face, she believed he was trying to get a gun, so she grabbed a knife from her purse. When he swung again at her, she said the "the knife inadvertently stabbed him," according to the complaint.
