A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a family dispute, Santa Maria police Lt. Mark Norling said Saturday.

Officers were sent to the 500 block of West Cypress Street about 5:33 p.m. Friday on an assault call, and learned the suspect and a victim had been involved in a dispute.

The victim, whose name and relationship to the suspect were not released, sustained injuries and was examined at the scene by American Medical Response paramedics. 

Norling said Alezandre was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder.
