A 58-year-old woman stabbed and gravely injured a man in their Pomona home Tuesday and then hold up for nearly five hours until negotiators coaxed her into surrendering, police said.

The victim was stabbed in the body about 12:45 p.m. in the house in the 200 block of West Arrow Highway, according to Pomona police Lt. Eddie Vazquez, who said investigators were treating the stabbing as a domestic violence attack.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he underwent surgery and was fighting for his life, according to Vazquez. His name was not released.

The suspect, identified as Doris Anna Eng, barricaded herself in the home and threatened to commit suicide by cop, Vazquez said.

With a SWAT team surrounding the home, crisis negotiators spoke with the woman and finally persuaded her to surrender about 5:30 p.m., Vazquez said.

She was taken to a hospital for treatment of an unspecified injury that Vazquez described as “minor to moderate.”

The woman was due to be booked once medically cleared, Vazquez said.

The victim and suspect lived as a couple, but it was not immediately clear if they were actually married, Vazquez said.
