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. 661-287-5527 On Twitter @jamesarthurholt
