A Spanaway woman was arrested late Monday after allegedly stabbing her father.
A neighbor in the 17900 block of 25th Avenue East heard a disturbance about 7:30 p.m. and went to investigate. He called 911 after seeing the victim pinning his daughter to the ground.
Pierce County sheriff’s deputies took the 30-year-old woman into custody.
Her 55-year-old father was taken to an area hospital in serious condition. He had been stabbed three times in the back with a large kitchen knife, sheriff’s spokesman Gary Sanders said.
It was not known what started the confrontation.
