A man was arrested early Thursday morning after he allegedly stabbed a woman in Paradise.
Officers were called to a reported assault on the 5000 block of Maxwell Drive at 12:51 a.m. and contacted James Hassan, 50, who told them he had been assaulted by three men.
Police began investigating Hassan’s claim, which led them to a home on Lucky John Road where they learned that Hassan had actually stabbed a woman.
The woman was transported to Feather River Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Hassan was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Butte County Jail.
