Woman arrested on suspicion of trying to kill neighbor

A 48-year-old Sequim woman has been arrested on investigation of attempted murder charges after her neighbor was assaulted and had his neck cut.

The Peninsula Daily News reports Clallam County Fire District 3 medics responded to a medical emergency at a Sequim apartment complex Tuesday evening.

Sequim Police Department Staff Sgt. Sean Madison says medics found a 58-year-old man who had been assaulted.

Police detained Larisa Dietz at the scene and arrested her Wednesday.

Dietz was booked into the Clallam County jail for investigation of attempted second degree murder, burglary and assault. It wasn't known if she has a lawyer.

Madison says the victim was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and remains in stable condition.

Madison says the two knew each other and police are investigating the nature of the relationship.
