At approximately 2:20 a.m. on June 30, 2016, law enforcement officers responded to a call for a cutting in progress at a residence in the 5300 block of Costa Mesa.

Officers arrived and found a female victim with a deep stab wound to her torso.

The female victim told officers 31-year-old Gary Leon Nicholas, who is also her boyfriend, came to her house and began arguing with an elderly male relative of hers.

She watched as Nicholas shoved the elderly man to the ground, causing him pain and injuries.
