Watsonville police arrest man on domestic violence, attempted murder charges

Posted on in

Authorities claim that they found the woman at her apartment complex with cuts on her hands, arms and her abdomen. The father of her child was also at the apartment, and police claim that he had the woman's blood on him. Investigators say that the woman had told the man to leave the apartment, and the issue boiled up into a domestic dispute.

The couple reportedly has had an on-again-off-again relationship. The couple have a child together, but later had broken up about one year ago, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel. Sources say that the couple got back together recently, and the man moved in with the woman.

Apparently, she says that she wanted him out and told him to leave Tuesday. The woman is believed to have left the apartment expecting her boyfriend to leave while she was gone. When she returned, she says the man was still there, and armed with a knife.

She says the two argued, and then she says that he tried to stab her. Watsonville police arrested the man on a series of claims, including suspicion of attempted murder, domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon and child endangerment.

The 29-year-old Watsonville man was put in jail on $1 million bail. He reportedly was scheduled for arraignment Thursday.
