Guam - A Navy sailor is in fair condition at Naval Hospital, but in police custody after he was arrested on numerous charges to include attempted murder and aggravated assault.  Police responded to a call of a stabbing at Ladera Towers in Mangilao just after 11 o'clock Wednesday night. 

Officers arrived to find a woman who had been stabbed.  She was transported to Naval Hospital in Agana Heights where Navy Spokesperson Lieutenant Jodie Cornell confirms the victim, who is also a servicemember, is listed in "fair" condition.  Guam Police Department Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia confirms the woman received a laceration to her throat, but police are not disclosing the type of weapon that was used.

GPD's SWAT Unit assisted with locating the suspect, who fled the crime scene.

Bernard Alan Jennings, 41, is a support staffer with the Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 5.  He was arrested and charged with family violence, aggravated assault, attempted murder, resisting arrest, assault on a police officer and possession of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony. 

The Navy's Criminal Investigation Section is also assisting GPD with the investigation.
