An argument turned deadly Sunday night in Garden Grove and a man was arrested on murder and assault with a deadly weapon charges.

The incident took place in the 10300 Lampson Avenue area (between Brookhurst Street and Nutwood Avenue). According to Detective Sgt. Nick Jensen, officers were dispatched there around 10:27 p.m. in reference to a report of a stabbing.

Police believe that an argument between the suspect – identified as Juan Carlos Fernandez Bustos, 25, of Garden Grove – and another man turned into violence. It’s believed that the argument was about a relationship that the suspect had been involved in.

When the victim – a 43-year-old Garden Grove man – sought to intervene, he was stabbed in the upper torso. He was taken to a nearby hospital and later died from his injuries.

A 16-year-old Garden Grove girl also tried to intervene in the fracas and suffered injuries to her hand. She was treated for the wound and is in stable condition.

The suspect was identified and located at a nearby hospital, also with injuries. The cause of those wounds is still under investigation.
