    Garden Grove man arrested after attacking woman with knife in her apartment, police say
    • July 13, 2023

    A Garden Grove man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after police said he broke into the apartment of a woman he knew and attacked her with a knife.

    Garden Grove police said in a statement that a 27-year-old man “let himself into” the woman’s apartment in the 12500 block of Lorna Street in the early afternoon of Wednesday, July 12.

    He encountered the woman and they began to argue and he pulled out a knife and threaten her, police said.

    As the woman tried to flee, he grabbed her, “placed his arm around the victim’s neck and began to repeatedly lunge the knife toward her.”

    He eventually let the woman go as he left the Garden Grove apartment. The woman had knife wounds to her body and face, police said.

    Garden Grove detectives later found the suspect in Westminster and arrested him. They said they found a knife on him matching the one the victim said was used in the attack. Police did not say how they were able to find him.

    Police haven’t said why the man allegedly attacked the woman. He was booked into an Orange County jail on $500,000 bail.
