On May 8, 2013 at 11:36 p.m., Officers from the Santa Barbara Police Department responded to a call of
an assault with a deadly weapon that had just occurred in the vicinity of 200 W. Montecito Street. Upon
arrival they contacted a 25-year old male victim suffering from multiple non-life threatening stab
wounds. The victim was transported from the scene to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Emergency Room
where he was treated and released.
Investigation indicates that at the time of the incident the victim was confronted by two males, the
suspect and a companion, on 200 W. Montecito Street. The suspect attacked the victim with a knife and
the victim fought to defend himself. The suspect and his companion then fled the scene. This
investigation is still ongoing and additional details are being withheld. At this time it does not appear
to be a gang incident.
