On Sunday, March 29, 2015,  at approximately 2:30am, Ontario Police began an Assault investigation that occurred at a mobile home park in the in the 600 block of Fortner Street in Ontario. The suspect, 19 year-old Justin Lee Englund, arrived at the residence and was making suicidal comments. He had also cut his wrists and was threatening further harm to himself.  Englund then engaged in a physical altercation with a former domestic partner, a 25 year old female from Ontario. The female stated Englund hit her in the face and bit her leg during the altercation. Englund was violating a protection order by contacting the female.

A 32 year-old male from Ontario attempted to intervene and told officers that Englund
cut him with a knife. This individual sustained a laceration to his abdomen. He was taken to Saint Alphonsus Medical Center in Ontario and has since been transferred to another hospital. There are no indications the injuries are life threatening at this time.

Englund fled the scene on a bicycle, which was found abandoned about a block away later in the morning. Englund is being sought for Felony Assault. Anyone with information on Englund should contact police.
