CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A domestic dispute at a South Bay apartment complex escalated Tuesday into a stabbing that left a 24-year-old man dead and his girlfriend under arrest.
A woman made a 911 call about 8:45 a.m. to report that her sister's boyfriend had suffered what she described as an accidental knife injury during an argument between the couple at the residence in the 1200 block of Santa Cora Avenue in Chula Vista, said Capt. Gary Wedge.
Patrol officers arrived to find the sisters performing CPR on the man on a landing outside a second-floor rental unit, Wedge said. Medics took over the lifesaving attempts, then transported the victim to Scripps Mercy Hospital, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later. His name was withheld pending family notification.
No other injuries were reported.
Detectives took the girlfriend of the dead man into custody for questioning. It was unclear what type of charges she might face, and her identity was not immediately released.
The couple's year-old child was in the apartment at the time of the stabbing, as was the 4-year-old child of the suspect's sister, according to Wedge. Neither was believed to have witnessed the fatality.
Last September, another disturbance between the man and his girlfriend at the residence led to his arrest on suspicion of felony domestic violence, the captain said. Wedge said he was unsure if that case resulted in criminal charges.
The man apparently stayed off and on at the apartment, where his girlfriend and her sister live full-time, Wedge said.
