ELKO – An Elko woman was arrested Thursday afternoon on charges of stabbing her estranged boyfriend early Wednesday morning.
Elko Police Department Lt. Mike Palhegyi said police were called to a residence on Matys Lane at about 1 a.m. Wednesday after a man was stabbed in the thigh. The wound was not life-threatening.
The suspect had fled the scene prior to officers arriving. Officers collected evidence and Elba Gonzalez, 29, was arrested Thursday at a residence in Kittridge Canyon.
Palhegyi said Gonzalez faces charges of battery with a deadly weapon and burglary with a deadly weapon.
According to Elko Daily files, Gonzalez was also arrested in March 2018 on three felony counts of selling a controlled substance. She was arrested again in December for jumping bail on the charges.
