The victim had sustained at least one stab wound and was transported to a trauma center. The victim is currently listed with non-life threatening injuries. 

Damien Martinez was booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center and has been charged with one count each of Attempted First Degree Murder (F2) and Domestic Violence/Aggravated Assault (F3).
