Man allegedly stabs girlfriend who refused him $20 as kids watch
A man allegedly stabbed his girlfriend in the stomach after she refused to give him $20 as their children watched, police said.
Lombard Martinez walked into the Glendale Police Department headquarters on Isabel Street about 11:26 a.m. Sunday and was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and spousal assault after the alleged stabbing, Sgt. Tom Lorenz told the Glendale News-Press.
The girlfriend, whose name was not released, was treated for a non-life-threatening stab wound to her stomach at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and released. She was stabbed about 3 a.m. after refusing to give Martinez $20 as the couple’s 3- and 5-year-old sons watched from their bed, Lorenz said.
She told officers that Martinez had come home drunk demanding the money, and when she refused, she was stabbed.
