A woman suspected of stabbing a man who was attempting to repossess her vehicle was arrested Monday.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department received a report of a stabbing near Hook Creek Road and Highway 173 in Cedar Glen Friday at noon.

A man acting as a repossession agent for an auto dealer attempted to repossess a woman's vehicle at a residence. The suspect, Christina Johnson, allegedly bought a 2008 Subaru Impreza using fraudulent information.

Johnson reportedly refused to let the repo agent take the car. She allegedly retrieved a knife from the car and stabbed the agent several times in the back, wrist and arm, according to the sheriff's department. She then rammed her car into the agent's and attempted to hit him as she drove away in the Impreza.

Deputies, an aviation unit and California Highway Patrol officers did not locate Johnson or the vehicle in a subsequent search.

The agent was hospitalized with five stab wounds.

Big Bear Station deputies Monday located the Impreza at a residence on the 39000 block of Willow Landing in Big Bear Lake. Detectives responded to the scene and Johnson was arrested without incident, according to the department.

Johnson was booked at the Central Detention Center for attempted murder and was held on $500,000 bail.
