BALDWIN PARK >> A man was hospitalized in critical condition and a woman was behind bars after a family dispute escalated into a stabbing early Saturday, police said.
The violence took place about 12:40 a.m. at a home in the 14300 block of Cavell Place, Baldwin Park police Lt. Mark Adams said in a written statement.
Police first received a report of a “family disturbance,” he said.
“Upon their arrival, they discovered a male adult inside the residence suffering from several stab wounds,” Adams.
Paramedics took the badly injured man to a trauma center, where he underwent emergency surgery. He was listed in critical but stable condition.
Police arrested Nydessa Hooper, 26, of Baldwin Park on suspicion of attempted murder, according to Sgt. Joshua Hendricks said.
The relationship between Hooper and the victim was not available Saturday afternoon, nor were further details regarding the circumstances of the stabbing.
According to county booking records, Hooper was being held in lieu of $2 million bail pending her initial court appearance, scheduled Tuesday in the Pomona branch of Los Angeles County Superior Court.
