REDDING, Calif. -

A fight over a woman has landed one man in jail and his cousin recovering from a stab wound.

Police responded Monday night to a report of a stabbing at 2615 Park Marina Drive.

Jacob Taylor, 34, told police his cousin Charles Haller, 48, had stabbed him in the chest after the two men argued over a woman.

Haller ran from the scene but officers located him with the help of a police K-9.  They said they found him in some bushes near The Beadman business at 2619 Park Marina Drive.

He was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.   Taylor refused to be transported by ambulance.  His injury did not appear life-threatening.
