Chatsworth hammer-knife attack sends woman to hospital, boyfriend to jail

A man alleged to have attacked his girlfriend with a hammer and knife Tuesday night in Chatsworth was taken into custody in connection with the crime, authorities said.

Angel Rios, 20, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, said Officer Irma Mota of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relation Section. She did not have a residence listed for Rios.

Police were summoned at 8:17 p.m. to the 7400 block of Canoga Avenue, in Canoga Park, where they found the woman in a vehicle, police said.

The woman was taken to a hospital, where she underwent surgery and was in stable condition.

Mota said the incident began in the area of De Soto Avenue and Nordhoff Street in Chatsworth around 5:50 p.m. when Rios and the victim got into an argument. The dispute turned physical when Rios allegedly hit his girlfriend with a hammer and then stabbed her with a knife, Mota said.

Rios then fled the location, Mota said. The victim was transported by her boyfriend’s mother to another location where a 9-1-1 call was made.

Around 9 p.m., authorities found Rios on Sunnybrae Avenue in Chatsworth and arrested him.

He is currently being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Van Nuys Jail, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department booking website.
