Reyes was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of robbery, Hoover said.
The victim was transported to the hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries.
At 2:20 a.m., deputies and officers responded to a report of a stabbing on the 6500 block of Del Playa Drive.
“Upon arrival, a 21-year-old Isla Vista male resident was located at the scene and found to be suffering from a stab wound,” Hoover said, adding that he was taken by AMR ambulance to the hospital.
Investigation revealed that three men were involved in the stabbing, and the suspects were located a short time later in the area of Camino Pescadero and Picasso Road, where they were arrested at gunpoint, Hoover said.
They were identified as Javier Rodriguez-Anguiano, 21, Francisco Guzman, 21, and Juan Raul Garibay Arredondo, 20, all from Lompoc.
“Further investigation linked the three suspects to the stabbing, and also identified them as being the group associated with the armed robbery suspect,” Hoover said.
All three were booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
