San Luis Obispo County Gang Task Force members on Sunday arrested a 20-year-old Oceano man in connection with a stabbing that left a 40-year-old Phoenix, Arizona, man with serious injuries the day before.
The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a report of a stabbing at a home on the 2100 block of Vista Street in Oceano about 10:45 p.m. Saturday. Outside, they found the victim with a stab wound to the torso, a Sheriff’s Office news release said.
The victim was taken to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center to undergo surgery, and remained there recovering Monday, the news release said.
The suspect, identified as Jaime Alberto Uc, allegedly fled the scene before deputies arrived.
About 6 p.m. Sunday, acting on an arrest warrant, Sheriff’s Office detectives and gang task force members located Uc at a motel on Traffic Way in Arroyo Grande, where he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, the release said.
Uc was booked into County Jail, where he remained Monday in lieu of $30,000 bail.
