SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A 36-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder for allegedly trying to kill his ex-girlfriend with a knife at her South San Francisco residence early Sunday, police said.
The victim called police at about 3:20 a.m. to report that her ex-boyfriend, 36-year-old Wilbert Interian-Rodriguez, had attacked her with a large serrated kitchen knife at her home in the 200 block of Holly Avenue, authorities said.
Police said their investigation concluded that the woman and Interian-Rodriguez had been arguing but when the woman tried to leave he blocked the door, grabbed the knife, held it against her throat, threatened to kill her and destroyed her phone to prevent her from calling for emergency help.
Police said that in addition to attempted murder, Interian-Rodroguez was arrested on suspicion of making terrorist threats, false imprisonment and destroying a telephone to prevent calling for emergency help.
