Woman Faces Attempted Murder Charges in Vickroy Park Stabbing

A woman was arrested on attempted murder charges following a stabbing incident that took place near Vickroy Park Thursday morning.

Burbank Police said the altercation “stemmed from a domestic incident,” which led to the stabbing.

At about 11:30 a.m., police officers responded to Vickroy Park, near Monterey Place, after an officer called in an assault with a deadly weapon, reportedly a knife, that had just occurred.

One officer was working in the area when he observed the woman, allegedly with a knife in her hand, chasing a bloodied man toward the park, police said.

“The officer immediately intervened and ordered the two individuals to stop,” Burbank Police Department spokesman Sgt. Stephen Turner said in a statement.

The officer detained both subjects without further incident. Police investigators said that the confrontation between the man and woman took place at a nearby residence.

During the altercation, the woman allegedly stabbed the man several times with a knife, police said, adding that the woman chased the man out of the house and into the street near the park where they were detained by the officer.

“It was fortunate that there was an officer in the area,” Turner told the Leader.

The victim was transported to a hospital, where he underwent surgery. He was listed in serious but stable condition and was expected to survive the attack.

A large bloody knife was recovered at the scene.

The suspect has been identified as a 33-year-old Burbank resident. She was booked on charges of attempted murder and is being held on $1 million bail. She is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, March 25.

Formal charges are pending review by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
