It’s not exactly a May-December romance, but whatever it was, it didn’t end well.

A 17-year-old boy was in custody Wednesday for allegedly stabbing his 24-year-old girlfriend in Covina.

The crime occurred about 9 p.m. Wednesday in the 700 block of East Workman Street, Covina police Sgt. Gregg Peterson said.

Officers sent to the scene found the victim in the parking lot of an apartment complex, “suffering from numerous stab wounds (to) her upper torso, neck and face,” Peterson said.

The woman, whose name was withheld, was taken to a hospital for surgery and was listed in serious condition Wednesday afternoon, Peterson said.

“While the officers were conducting their investigation, information was developed that the person responsible for the stabbing was possibly still in the area,” he said.

“While conducting an area check, officers contacted a 17-year-old male subject in a condominium complex in the 600 block of East Workman Street,” Peterson said.

The officers “noticed he was bleeding from some cuts to his hands, and he also made some statements regarding the stabbing, at which time he was taken into custody for attempted murder,” the sergeant said.

The teen was taken to a hospital for treatment, then to Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall, Peterson said. The suspect and victim are both residents of Covina.

The boy, whose name was withheld because of his age, was being held without bail pending arraignment in Pomona Juvenile Court on Thursday.
