UPDATE: Woman fatally stabbed, suspects arrested

CARLSBAD — A woman was killed today in a predawn home-invasion assault in a neighborhood near Agua Hedionda Lagoon, authorities reported.

The victim made a 911 call about 12:30 a.m. to report that she had been stabbed at her home in the 1800 block of Outrigger Lane in Carlsbad, according to police.

Officers arrived to find the 64-year-old woman suffering from multiple puncture wounds, Lt. Jason Jackowski said. Paramedics took her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead about 1:30 a.m. Her name was withheld pending family notification.

Investigators believe a man and a woman broke into the woman’s home and attacked her, then fled in the victim’s vehicle, the lieutenant said. Officers searched for the burglars by ground and aboard a law enforcement helicopter through the morning.

Deputies found the victim’s vehicle abandoned in the 800 block of Grand Avenue in San Marcos shortly after 5:30 a.m., sheriff’s Lt. David Buether said.

In the late morning, officers took a man and woman into custody at gunpoint in an open area near the site of the home-invasion slaying, but police had no other immediate information about the arrests.

Dispatchers received a call from a woman around 12:30 a.m. reporting that she had been stabbed in the 1800 block of Outrigger Lane, just north of Agua Hedionda Lagoon, Carlsbad Police Lt. Jason Jackowski said.

Officers responded to the home and found the 64-year-old woman suffering from multiple stab wounds.

Paramedics took her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 1:32 a.m., Jackowski said, adding that her name was withheld pending family notification.

Investigators believe a man and a woman broke into the woman’s home then fled in the victim’s vehicle, the lieutenant said.

A K9 unit from the Oceanside Police Department and a San Diego County Sheriff’s helicopter were called in to search for the suspects.

Deputies found the victim’s vehicle in the 800 block of Grand Avenue in San Marcos shortly before 5:40 a.m., sheriff’s Lt. David Buether said.

As of 10:15 a.m., the suspects remained at large, Jackowski said.   

No suspect descriptions were immediately available.

Carlsbad police were investigating the circumstances leading up to the stabbing.

THIS MAKES NO SENSE! They drove to San Marcos and then got caught near the home in Carlsbad?!?

Deputies found the victim’s vehicle abandoned in the 800 block of Grand Avenue in San Marcos shortly after 5:30 a.m., sheriff’s Lt. David Buether said.

In the late morning, officers took a man and woman into custody at gunpoint in an open area near the site of the home-invasion slaying, but police had no other immediate information about the arrests.

Reporter Rick,
Yes, the victim’s car was found abandoned in San Marcos and the suspects were arrested later near the scene of the crime in Carlsbad. It is unclear why they went back to the scene. Very strange and sad.
