Woman arrested after stabbing boyfriend in the face with a paint scraper

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A 35-year-old Laguna Hills woman was arrested Tuesday night after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the face with a paint scraper, officials said.

It happened at approximately 11:40 pm, on March 19, 2019, when a passerby reported a man and woman sitting in a car at George Blvd and Air Expressway and the man was screaming for help and saying he had been stabbed.

Deputies arrived and learned the two were boyfriend/girlfriend and had been in a verbal argument inside the car.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez told Victor Valley News, during the argument, the girlfriend, later identified as Regina Whitlow, began hitting and kicking the 42-year old male victim in the face and then stabbed him in the face with a paint scraper.

“The victim was treated on scene by personnel from AMR but refused to be transported to a hospital for further treatment,” stated Rodriguez.

Whitlow was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center for assault with a deadly weapon and inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.

Her bail is set at $50,000 and she is scheduled for arraignment in a Victorville courtroom on March 21, 2019.
