Sponsored by:

A Sonora man was arrested for attempted murder after witnesses say he tried to stab a woman at the St. Charles Saloon in Columbia over the weekend.

Tuolumne County Sheriff´s Lt. John Steely says 51-year-old Michael Linan was under a restraining order to stay away from Ruth Samanavich.

Linan allegedly approached her at the bar Sunday evening and cut her face with a knife, then cut himself before some other people there intervened and held him down until sheriff´s deputies arrived.

Steely said the woman is in critical condition.

Linan was booked on the attempted murder charge.
