Man charged for attacking girlfriend in South San Francisco
April 30, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Wilbert Interian-Rodriguez

A 36-year-old man who allegedly held a knife to his ex-girlfriend’s throat early Sunday was charged Tuesday with felony counts of domestic violence, false imprisonment and making threats.

Wilbert Interian-Rodriguez was also charged with a misdemeanor count of destroying a phone to prevent a call for help.

South San Francisco police originally arrested him on suspicion of attempted murder but prosecutors opted for the lesser charges. At his initial arraignment, Interian-Rodriguez pleaded not guilty and did not waive his right to a speedy trial. He returns to court May 13 for a preliminary hearing and bail was set at $100,000.

Police arrested Interian-Rodriguez after responding to a disturbance call at about 3:20 a.m. in the 200 block of Holly Avenue.

The alleged victim told police she and Interian-Rodriguez had been arguing for two days and were in the process of breaking up because she had a new boyfriend. He reportedly was angry, broke her cellphone and, she said, grabbed the knife and placed it to her throat. The woman told her roommate to call the police.

The roommate said she did not see the knife or hear the threat.

The woman was left with a 1-inch red mark on her neck and Interian-Rodriguez had scratch marks on his chest.
