SAN DIEGO (CNS) — A 28-year-old man was behind bars Friday on suspicion of stabbing his girlfriend multiple times inside a Colina Del Sol apartment, police said.

Dispatchers received multiple calls shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday from neighbors who reported hearing screaming coming from one of the apartments in a complex on 49th Street just south of El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego police Officer Tony Martinez said.

Officers responding to the scene found that a woman had been stabbed multiple times and the suspect had fled, Martinez said.

The victim, whose age was not immediately available, was taken to a hospital for treatment of her wounds, which were not believed to be life- threatening, the officer said.

Around 10:35 p.m. Thursday, the suspect apparently called 911, told a dispatcher his location, and indicated that he was going to surrender.

The 28-year-old man, later identified as Mason Rosenberger, was taken into custody around 10:45 p.m. on El Cajon Boulevard near El Cerrito Drive, Officer Scott Lockwood said.

Rosenberger was booked into the San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of attempted murder, according to jail records. He was being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
