Police: Three arrested in love triangle attack

Winter Haven, Florida - Winter Haven police arrested three people after they say they attacked a woman as a result of an apparent "love triangle."

Officers say a married couple, Robert Fields and Heather Fields, conspired to beat up a woman who had been in a relationship with Robert Fields for a few months. The wife, authorities say, "wanted revenge."

According to investigators, the Fields and another man, Vernon McGilbra, met the victim at an apartment. Heather Fields and McGilbra hid behind a wall while Robert Fields approached the victim, grabbed her hair, and punched her in the face.  This is when authorities say Heather and McGilbra came from behind the wall with a baseball bat.

Officers say the victim was able to stab Robert in the stomach with a switchblade knife and run to safety inside the apartment. 

Robert was taken to a local hospital by his wife and McGilbra, where police found the three. Police say they found the baseball bat, along with a set of metallic knuckles, a switchblade, and a .40 caliber handgun in Heather's car.

Robert Fields is charged with Battery. Heather Fields is charged with Aggravated Assault and Possession of a Weapon in Commission of a Felony, and McGilbra faces an Aggravated Assault charge.

The victim received minor injuries.
