Police arrested a West Jordan man on suspicion of attempted murder Sunday morning after he allegedly attacked his wife with a knife during a domestic dispute.
West Jordan police officer J.C. Holt said officers responded about 1:55 a.m. to the home near 9000 South and 4800 West. When they arrived, Holt said, a woman told them that she and her husband were involved in an argument when her husband suddenly grabbed her around the neck and started to strangle her. When he released her, the woman said he then grabbed a knife and stabbed her before fleeing the scene, Holt said.
He said the woman suffered a defensive-type stab wound to her hand and was also cut in the face. She was taken to the hospital for treatment, but is expected to recover, he said.
