Mother Charged With Assault After Swinging Kitchen Knife At Daughter

A mother was arrested Sunday on felony assault charges after she allegedly swung a kitchen knife at her daughter, cutting her boyfriend who was trying to deescalate the situation during an argument, officials said.

On Sunday around 4:20 p.m., deputies responded to a residence on the 20400 block of Soledad Canyon Road regarding a family disturbance call, said Shirley Miller, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“The suspect and victim are mother/daughter,” Miller said. “They reportedly were having an argument and the suspect, the mother, was allegedly holding a kitchen knife and swinging it towards the victim, making verbal threats.”

The victim’s boyfriend tried to get the knife away from the suspect and was cut in the process, according to Miller.

Both victims declined medical treatment at the scene, according to Sheriff’s officials.

The suspect, Joanna Torres, 38, of Canyon Country, was arrested on felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon, the knife and criminal threats, according to Miller.

Torres was arrested and transported to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station jail with bail set at $30,000, according to arrest records.

About Louie Diaz

Louie was born and raised in Santa Clarita. At the age of two Louie lost his vision due to a brain tumor. However, Louie doesn't let blindness stop him from doing what ever it is he wants to accomplish. Growing up some of his favorite hobbies were wood working, fishing and riding bikes. Louie graduated from College of the Canyon in December of 2017, with a Broadcast Journalism degree. Growing up Louie has always wanted to be a fire fighter or a police officer, but because of his blindness Louie knew that wouldn't work. Louie has always loved listening to police and fire radio traffic, using a scanner, and he figured if he was going to listen to the scanner so much, he should do something with it.
