A Santa Paula man was arrested for attempted murder after stabbing another man on 2/17/2021.
On 2/17/2021, deputies from the Sheriff’s Fillmore Patrol Station responded to a call of a stabbing victim in the 14000 block of Foothill Road, in the unincorporated area near Santa Paula. Upon their arrival, deputies located a 31-year-old male victim suffering from multiple stab wounds.
The victim was transported via ambulance to a local hospital where he remains in stable condition.
Investigators from the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau and Gang Unit responded to assist with the investigation.
