Around 3 a.m. Saturday, a 20-year-old woman arrived at the Contra Costa Regional Medical Center's emergency room with stab wounds and facial injuries, police said.

Police learned that the woman had been beaten and stabbed earlier that morning at a home in the 900 block of Court Street in Martinez, near the county jail.

Further investigation led officers to serve a search warrant around 11 a.m. Saturday at the residence where the alleged assault occurred, according to police.

Officers found several pieces of evidence at the home but did not locate the suspects, Jacob Lerman, 42, and his wife, 30-year-old Jackie Lerman, police said.
