Phelan man arrested for stabbing mother, brother

Lee held on $2 million bail

PHELAN • A 21-year-old Phelan resident was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after allegedly stabbing his mother and brother, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials.

Philip Lee is being held in lieu of a $2 million bail after deputies learned that he had attempted to slit the throat of his brother and had stabbed his mother several times in an attempt to kill them, according to Victor Valley station spokeswoman Pamela Hoffman.

Sheriff’s deputies received a call at about 10:39 a.m. Saturday regarding a stabbing at a residence in the 8600 block of Sahara Road in Phelan, Hoffman said.

Deputies Chase Ash and Paul Kowalski found an adult female and a juvenile male suffering from knife wounds when they arrived on scene, according to Hoffman.

The deputies found Lee sitting in a parked car outside the residence and took him into custody, Hoffman said. He was booked at the Victor Valley Jail.

Both victims were transported to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Court records show two active charges of attempted murder against Lee, but information on his next court date was not available on Monday afternoon.
