Officers were called to Saint Agnes Medical Center just before 10 a.m. after a woman with multiple stab wounds was dropped off at the hospital by her boyfriend.

Minutes later, officers were called to the 1100 block of East Kelso Avenue, just north of Clovis West High School, on a report that an adult son was trying to kill his mother with a knife, Lt. Joe Gomez said. The caller indicated the son had his mother cornered, Gomez said.

Officers arrived and detained the son in the front yard, police said. The mother had the knife and turned it over to police. She was not stabbed in the encounter.

Officers learned the two cases were related. Clark had blood on his clothing and inside his car when arrested, Gomez said.

Police gave this account of what happened:

Clark drove his girlfriend to do some remodeling work on a home near Millbrook and Teague avenues in the Clovis West neighborhood. As she got out of the vehicle, Clark stabbed her in the upper body, Gomez said.

The woman was stabbed in the head, neck, hands and upper torso. Clark then drove her to the hospital.

He returned to his Kelso Avenue home, where he assaulted and threatened to kill his mother while wielding a knife, Gomez said. He also tried to stab and threatened to kill his 18-year-old son, but his mother was able to call police before he could hurt anyone.

Clark’s girlfriend was taken to Community Regional Medical Center. Clark was also at the hospital to detoxify from methamphetamine before he would be booked into Fresno County Jail, Gomez said.

Clark will face charges of assault with a deadly weapon and making terrorists threats, police said.
