At 10:50 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to the 100 block of Bonita Avenue on a report of an assault. Responding officers located a woman who had been stabbed about three times in the neck, police said.

“She was exiting her vehicle following a dispute with a female acquaintance when the assault occurred,” police said.
