Petaluma Woman Assaults Father with Knife During Dispute Over Boyfriend

A woman in Petaluma was arrested after she assaulted her father with a knife during an argument on Saturday evening, an acting police sergeant said.
Shortly after 5 p.m. on Saturday, police were notified that a woman had assaulted her father during a family argument in a home on Santa Clara Lane, located near Miwok Park, Petaluma Police Department Acting Sgt. Ron Klein said.

Based on the police investigation, 63-year-old Michael Haguland and his 34-year-old daughter Jennifer Haguland were in a verbal argument about the daughter's boyfriend.

The daughter became angry and verbally threatened to kill her father, according to Klein. She then grabbed a knife and threatened her father with it while making a stabbing motion at him. He deflected the knife, causing a minor laceration to his hand, Klein said.

The father did not require medical treatment, but his daughter was placed under arrest for assault with a deadly weapon and making criminal threats against her father, according to the acting sergeant.

Jennifer Haguland was booked into Sonoma County Jail with bail set at $30,000, police said.

More details, please. Probably bad parenting and a co-dependency relationship between dad and daughter. Maybe if she had marketable skills and supported herself, this would not have happened.

Candi, Where did you get your Psychiatry, Parenting & Mind Reading Degree? How do you know how she "supported" herself? And "Marketable skills"? The folks at Enron had "marketable skills". So did Bernie Madoff...LOL You know zilch about that woman or her father, yet you contrive comments that would make Geraldo Rivera proud. How about this Candi: There's a 34 y/o woman with severe anger and psychological issues. How do I know?Anyone that decides to attempt to kill or injure a parent, (or human being), because they don't like what they said about a Boyfriend, (or Girlfriend) needs help.
