On Monday at 8:47 p.m., Reno police officers responded to a violent domestic disturbance in the area of the 400 block of Linden Street. Upon arrival, a 46-year-old woman was found suffering from numerous stab wounds and the suspect was gone. The investigation revealed that the victim was estranged from her husband and the two had recently moved to Reno from California. When the victim left her apartment, her husband attacked her with a broken beer bottle, causing numerous stab wounds. A neighbor heard the attack and intervened, physically pulling the suspect off of the victim.
The victim was transported to Renown Regional Medical Center where she was admitted for substantial but non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect fled from the scene of the attack and was not located that night.
Tuesday afternoon the suspect, Alvin Hatch, 50, called RPD and said he wanted to turn himself in. He was interviewed by detectives and was then booked for attempted murder and domestic battery causing substantial battery harm. His bail is $82,667.
