Laquent Toussant, 35, of Rancho Cucamonga was arrested early Sunday morning in the 9600 block of Milliken Avenue on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, said Cpl. Randy Naquin, spokesman for the Sheriff's Department. As of Wednesday afternoon, it was unclear in court records if Toussant had entered a plea in the attempted murder case against him.
Around 2 a.m. Sunday, officials received several 9-1-1 calls reporting a stabbing on Milliken Avenue near Fourth Street, officials said.
Deputies found Toussant still at the location allegedly armed with a large knife, Naquin said. They also found a man suffering from stab wounds to his back, hand and a cut to his stomach.
Paramedics transported the wounded man to a hospital.
Deputies learned the men had been involved in a argument at a restaurant some time before the stabbing, Naquin stated.
Toussant was arrested and booked into West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
A search of court documents shows Toussant was still on probation for a drug case from 2009. Records also show Toussant had been previously arrested in 2002 for battery on a spouse but ended up pleading guilty to disturbing the peace.
