A 21-year-old man stabbed during a domestic argument early Monday evening has been treated and released from the hospital, while his estranged girlfriend remains in custody accused in the attack.
The stabbing happened shortly after 6:30 p.m. Monday on Marta Lane near Harris Way in Canyon Country.
“He was treated and released from hospital,” Sgt. Dan Dantice of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station told The Signal late Tuesday afternoon.
“The woman is in custody, booked on felony domestic violence,” he said, referring to the suspect arrested on suspicion of assault.
Paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to a house on Marta Lane at 6:33, Fire Department Inspector Bernard Peters said.
“This call was for a stabbing,” he said.
“When paramedics arrived they staged while sheriff’s deputies responded,” Peters said, referring to a practice by first responders to wait for law enforcement at incidents where a crime is suspected.
“While they were waiting, the patient walked up to us,” he said.
