FPD Arrests Stabbing Suspect - Update

On Friday, November 16, 2018, at approximately 10:30 pm, Fullerton Police Officers responded to the area of the 2300 block of Iris Court regarding a possible stabbing of a female adult. Upon arrival, officers located the victim and determined she had sustained several wounds from a sharp-edged weapon. The victim was transported and treated at a local trauma center, where she has since been released.

Fullerton Police Officers searched the area and located Terele JONES (23, Ana...heim), who had recently been released on bail from a previous, unrelated burglary arrest. Due to information and evidence obtained by the first responding officers, JONES was arrested.

According to handling detectives, JONES entered the victim’s unlocked residence while she was home. The victim confronted JONES, which resulted in JONES physically attacking her. The victim reported she had no prior relationship with JONES, did not know him, and that he did not have permission to be in her residence.

JONES was charged and booked for attempted murder and burglary. He is currently in custody and set to be arraigned today.
