According to a release from the Clovis Police Department:

• Around 1:40 a.m., officers attempted to stop a car which failed to yield at a stop sign on Ninth and Prince Streets, but the chase was eventually terminated due to excessive speed. The vehicle was seen crashing through a fence on Grand Street and Industrial Drive.

• When officers responded to the crash site, they found a 27-year-old woman bleeding from her neck and arms. She said she was at a residence on the 500 block of 11th Street when Sena kicked in the door and entered carrying a knife and gun. She said a fight ensued between Sena and a 28-year-old male in the home, and Sena stabbed both of them and forcibly removed her from the home.

• The female, who sustained at least 23 stab wounds to her right hand, hip, wrist, bicep and neck was taken to Plains Regional Medical Center and subsequently airlifted to Lubbock. Her condition was listed as stable Wednesday afternoon following surgery, accoding to Capt. Roman Romero. Romero did not know the condition of the male victim, but said he was being treated and the wounds weren’t believed to be life-threatening.

• An arrest warrant was issued for Sena, who was arrested about 7:45 a.m. Wednesday in De Baca County without further incident.

Police declined to name the victims.
