Man allegedly stabs sleeping girlfriend

PASADENA — A local man waited until his girlfriend fell asleep before attacking her with a kitchen knife late Saturday, police said.
Renson Trochez, 36, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Pasadena police Lt. Randell Taylor.
His girlfriend, whom he lived with, was hospitalized with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, the lieutenant said.
The incident occurred about 9:20 p.m. at a home in the 800 block of North Garfield Avenue, he said, after the couple had been involved in an argument.
“She went to sleep, and he stabbed her in the neck twice,” Taylor said.
Though the wounded woman was expected to survive, “she lost a lot of blood,” Taylor said.
Trochez initially fled the scene, he added, but was arrested several hours later at a relatives house.
According to court records, Trochez is being held in lieu of $30,000 bail. The date of his initial court appearance was not available Sunday.
