When anger is starting to give you tunnel vision and your hands start to move on your own, stand up and get out of the situation. Run away if you have to. It's better than doing something you will regret later on.

"Police said the suspect has so far given no motive for attacking his girlfriend."

Does it matter? Attempted murder is still indefensible regardless of "motive".

Sounds like a case of the ol "You wanna break up with me? Well nobody else can have you!"
