Glendale woman accused of attempted murder after stabbing at Pasadena’s Central Park

PASADENA — A Glendale woman was behind bars on suspicion of attempted murder Wednesday after stabbing a man in the neck as he sat at a table at Central Park, police said.
Christine Hunt, 31, of Glendale was booked on suspicion of attempted murder following Tuesday’s 7:34 p.m. attack at the park in the 200 block of South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Rick Aversano said. She both arrived at and fled the scene in a taxi.
The stabbing victim, a 52-year-old Pasadena, underwent surgery for his injury and was expected to survive, Aversano said.
“The suspect exited a taxi, walked into the park and stabbed a victim,” the lieutenant said said. “He was sitting at a park table with some friends.”
Hunt and her alleged victim were not believed to have known each other prior to the stabbing, and the motive remained unclear, he said.
Hunt then got back into the taxi to leave the area, Aversano said. But police responding to the incident spotted it a short time later, pulled it over and arrested Hunt without a struggle.
According to county booking records, Hunt was being held in lieu of $1 million bail pending her initial court appearance.
