Man arrested in stabbing death of girlfriend

A man wanted on a California parole violation warrant has been arrested in Las Vegas on a murder count in the stabbing death of his girlfriend, Metro Police said.

Ricardo Glasgow, 53, of Los Angeles and his girlfriend Sharron Jones, 49, had been arguing Sunday night at a home in the 1500 block Silver Knoll Avenue, Metro Police said in a report released Tuesday.

Witnesses alleged that Glasgow threatened Jones with a knife earlier in the evening and said, “Nobody in this house can save you” and “you’re going to die,” according to the report.

Shortly after, Glasgow grabbed another knife from the kitchen, police said. Two women in the home saw Glasgow stab Jones multiple times with the knife, the report said.

The two witnesses tried to stop Glasgow by throwing things at him, but they were unsuccessful, the report said. They called police and fled to the roof, fearing Glasgow would turn the knife on them, police said.

Officers arrived at the home about 11:30 p.m. Sunday and saw the two women on the roof and Glasgow in the front yard, police said. His shirt had blood on it, and when police called to him, he went back inside, the report said.

When officers entered the home, they heard Glasgow say, “Come get me,” and “come see what I’m doing,” the report said.

The officers found Glasgow standing over Jones with a large knife, the report said. Glasgow didn’t obey the officers’ commands to surrender, forcing them to use a stun gun to subdue him, police said.

Jones, of southern California, was taken to University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 3:04 a.m. Monday.

Glasgow was wanted on California warrant for a parole violation stemming from an attempted murder charge in 2005, police said.

Glasgow was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on counts of murder with a deadly weapon, kidnapping with a deadly weapon, resisting police with a deadly weapon, and the fugitive warrant.
