ROWLAND HEIGHTS (CNS) – A 21-year-old man was behind bars today after allegedly stabbing his brother and a pregnant woman repeatedly in a Rowland Heights home, then barricading himself before surrendering to a sheriff’s SWAT team.
Deputies were sent at 2:55 p.m. Thursday to the 18000 block of Los Palacios Drive to investigate a report of a stabbing, said Lt. Steven Katz of the Detective Division at the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Walnut/Diamond Bar Station.
They found the 23-year-old man and an 18-year-old pregnant woman bleeding on the sidewalk with multiple stab wounds, he said.
Witnesses told deputies the assailant, who is the brother of the man he stabbed, was inside the residence, Katz said. Deputies surrounded the home and called in a SWAT team, and a short time later, the suspect, identified as David Campos, surrendered without further incident, he said.
The victims were airlifted to a hospital, Katz said. The man remained at County-USC Medical Center today in guarded but stable condition, said Sgt. J. Serpa of the sheriff’s Walnut/Diamond Bar Station. The woman was released from the hospital, said Serpa, who had no information on the fetus.
Campos was booked at the Walnut/Diamond Bar Station on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder, Serpa said. Katz said his bail was set at $1 million.
Campos is due in court in West Covina Monday. A motive for the violence was unclear this morning.
