Upon arrival, deputies located a victim of the stabbing and provided first aid. The victim was then transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center and taken into surgery. The victim remains at the medical center.

The suspect, 72-year-old William Loy, of Vancouver, was also located at the residence and taken into custody.

He was booked in the Clark County Law Enforcement Center on charges of first-degree assault, domestic violence. The Clark County Major Crimes Unit is investigating the stabbing.
