Last Tuesday at 2:30 p.m., deputies responded to a report of a stabbing on Mark Avenue in Watsonville.  Once deputies reached the scene, they found a 19-year-old victim suffering from two stab wounds to her torso.

The victim was transported to the hospital for treatment of her non-life threatening injuries.  During the investigation’s interview process, investigators learned the victim and 18-year-old Watsonville resident Daisy Gonzales got into a dispute which resulted in the victim being stabbed.

“The stabbing occurred on Mark Avenue in Watsonville,” Santa Cruz County Deputy Ryan Kennedy said. “The fight was over a male in which they were both romantically involved.”

The two were part of a love triangle, both being interested in the same man.

During the victim’s stay in the hospital she received threatening calls from Gonzales. Deputies were able to get in contact with Gonzales to make arrangements for her surrender.  She surrendered herself to deputies at the Santa Cruz County Jail.

Gonzales will be arraigned in a Santa Cruz County Court House on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and making terrorist threats.

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating this incident and is asking anyone that has information regarding the incident or had witness the stabbing to call the Sheriff Department at 831-454-2847.
