OC Woman Allegedly Stabs Boyfriend With Ice Pick Outside Church
A church meeting turned ugly last night in Yorba Linda when a 47-year-old woman allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the parking lot, according to the OC Register.
"The incident began when the 48-year-old victim was leaving a church meeting and got into his 2006 Mercedes Benz convertible," explain local authorities, who add that "the suspect, Elizabeth Cuevas Villanueva, was apparently hiding in the back seat and stabbed her ex-boyfriend multiple times in the head and shoulders with an ice pick."
After being stabbed, the victim pressed on the gas pedal and drove the car into a tree, however ultimately he "was able to get out of the car and run." The assailant also ran, but officers caught up with her on a nearby street and took her into custody. She was "arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon and brandishing a weapon. All are felonies."
The couple reportedly had split a few months ago, but were still living together. A motive for the stabbing has not been determined.
The victim was treated and released Monday night.
