A Canyon Country man accused of having stabbed his partner multiple times was arrested Monday night on suspicion of attempted murder.
The 33-year-old was arrested by deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station about 8:45 p.m. Monday in what is being treated as a case of domestic violence.
“About 8 p.m. on July 9, deputies responded to an emergent call in Newhall regarding a spousal assault/possible assault with a deadly weapon call that was in progress,” said Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
The victim and suspect are in a relationship, she said.
“Allegedly there was a verbal argument between the victim and the suspect that escalated into a physical altercation, during which the suspect grabbed a kitchen knife, and stabbed the victim multiple times,” Miller said.
The 33-year-old was arrested at the scene of the alleged altercation.
The victim, identified by deputies as a 35-year-old man, was taken by ambulance to a hospital for medical treatment.
The suspect’s bail has been set at $1.05 million.
