A man is accused of attacking his wife with a knife then stabbing himself after a Thanksgiving argument. Police responded to a domestic violence call yesterday morning at about 9:40 a.m. in the 6100 block of Edinger Avenue in Huntington Beach, CBS LA reports. When they got there, they found a woman who had been stabbed multiple times. Later, they found her husband, who police say appeared to have turned the knife on himself.

Both were taken to a nearby hospital and are expected to survive, according to Lt. J. Domingo with the Huntington Beach PD, City News Service reports. The man has been arrested for attempted murder.

Anyone with additional information can call the HBPD at 714-375-5066.
