A Glendale woman was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly stabbing her husband, police said.

Frances Serna, 48, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, said Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

Police responded to a domestic-disturbance call at 11:10 p.m. in the 1500 block of East Wilson Avenue.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers encountered a male victim, 55, with knife wounds to one of his forearms, Lightfoot said.

She said an investigation revealed that the married couple had gotten into an argument and Serna allegedly threatened her husband with a knife, saying that she wanted to kill him.

The suspect attempted to stab her husband in the head and he was cut while trying to protect himself, Lightfoot said.

Serna was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol during the attack, she added.

Serna’s husband was treated for his wound at the scene, but refused to be hospitalized.

Officers recovered a 10- to 12-inch knife at the residence, Lightfoot said.

Serna was booked on one count of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of domestic violence with a prior conviction within the past seven years.

She’s being held on $500,000 bail.
