VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A crisis intervention on Sunday afternoon prompted a brief closure of the Niqualli/La Mesa Road overpass in Victorville.
At about 1:34 pm, on April 24, 2022, deputies were out with the adult female who had a knife and began cutting herself.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Tricia Blake said deputies had their less-lethal ready and eventually deployed it. Deputies applied a tourniquet to the woman’s arm before she was transported by AMR to a local hospital.
Westbound lanes on La Mesa Road were temporarily closed during the investigation.
“That is all the information that will be released at this time” stated the spokeswoman.
