RANCHO CUCAMONGA - A local man already on probation was scheduled to be in court Wednesday to answer to charges he allegedly stabbed a man following an argument at a restaurant, San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials said Wednesday.

Laquent Toussant, 35, of Rancho Cucamonga was arrested early Sunday morning in the 9600 block of Milliken Avenue on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, said Cpl. Randy Naquin, spokesman for the Sheriff's Department. As of Wednesday afternoon, it was unclear in court records if Toussant had entered a plea in the attempted murder case against him.

Around 2 a.m. Sunday, officials received several 9-1-1 calls reporting a stabbing on Milliken Avenue near Fourth Street, officials said.

Deputies found Toussant still at the location allegedly armed with a large knife, Naquin said. They also found a man suffering from stab wounds to his back, hand and a cut to his stomach.

Paramedics transported the wounded man to a hospital.

Deputies learned the men had been involved in a argument at a restaurant some time before the stabbing, Naquin stated.

Toussant was arrested and booked into West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.

A search of court documents shows Toussant was still on probation for a drug case from 2009. Records also show Toussant had been previously arrested in 2002 for battery on a spouse but ended up pleading guilty to disturbing the peace.
