Man charged with malicious wounding after incident in Fairhaven area

A man is in custody after a violent altercation in the Fairhaven area last night that prompted a large police response. 

Marvin Luna Gomez, 30, faces charges of felony malicious wounding and misdemeanor destruction of property.

Police responded to the incident in the 2500 block of Fairhaven Avenue shortly before 10 p.m. last night. Luna Gomez allegedly fled the scene after the wounding, prompting a search by officers, K9 units and the police helicopter, a police spokeswoman said. Luna Gomez was found and arrested a short distance from the crime scene, according to the spokeswoman.

The 56-year-old victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
