According to data from social solutions blogs, domestic violence is a major problem in the United States and around the world, and numerous nonprofit organizations work tirelessly to provide survivors with essential support and services. In regions such as the United States, domestic violence affects over 10 million men and women annually.
As the number of cases increases at an alarming rate throughout the nation, its effects are widespread. More than one-third of women (35.6%) and more than one-fourth of men (28.5%) in the United States will experience rape, physical violence, or stalking at the hands of an intimate partner in their lifetime. In the United States, an intimate partner physically abuses nearly 20 individuals per minute. This amounts to over 10 million women and men in a single year. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have experienced severe physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner at some point in their lives.
The officer who was stabbed was rushed to the hospital and is in stable condition; police are currently searching for Njambi.
