Woman Accused Of Stabbing Senior Resident And A Dog Arrested In Wildomar

Shannon Lynn Jones, 25, is accused of stabbing an elderly woman and a dog.

A 25-year-old Bishop woman was arrested today for allegedly stabbing and beating an 80-year-old woman in a Riverside mobile home and stabbing a dog in another trailer in the same mobile home park.

Shannon Lynn Jones was arrested around 2 a.m. in Wildomar after a short vehicle chase. Jones was driving the 80-year-old woman's Toyota Camry, crashed it and tried to run away before she was caught, Riverside police Sgt. David Amador said.

Jones was finally apprehended at Bundy Canyon and Orange Street, jail records show.

The attacks on the woman and dog occurred early Monday at the Meadows mobile home park in the 4000 block of Pierce Street in the La Sierra neighborhood, Amador said.

The woman, who is hospitalized in serious but stable condition, was found around 8:10 a.m. Monday. She suffered multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma to her body, Amador said.

The attack on the dog was reported around 6 a.m. by a couple who said a woman had stabbed their pet inside their residence. The couple told reporters the woman was talking incoherently, saying she was hiding from her husband who was trying to kill her. They said they didn't discover their dog had been attacked until after the woman left. The animal was back home Monday night and was expected to survive, its owners told reporters.

A car next to the older woman's house was tampered with and another resident's shed was broken into, Amador said, adding that police believe all the crimes reported in the park were committed by the same suspect.

Jones was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside and was being held in lieu of $1 million bail. She was expected to be arraigned Thursday at the Riverside Hall of Justice, according to jail records. --City News Service

She is obviously either under the influence or mentally ill. Glad they caught her (right down the street!). I can see being disoriented and stabbing someone who you think might be out to get you, but who hurts a tiny helpless dog? She deserves to do some serious time. Praying for the lady who was hurt and the dog.

She looks like a tweeker if I have ever seen one look at the sores all over her face. Why is it that every looney tune out there somehow ends up in Wildomar/Lake Elsinore, really! That poor 80 year old Lady, she will be traumatized for the rest of her life, as well as the owners of the dog.

That's what I was thinking as well. Why do they always run to Wildomar?? I love my little town but starting to seriously consider moving out of California. Hope she gets what's coming to her for stabing that poor woman and the dog.

TWEAKER. Look at the speed bumps and sores on her ugly face. Just another meth user running ramped. Hopefully they will keep her locked away long enough to kick the meth habit.

The authorities should disrupt this by somehow limiting the chemicals used in meth production.
