A 32-year-old man was behind bars Saturday night, following his arrest in connection with a San Jacinto stabbing over living arrangements, authorities said.
Noah Fernandez was arrested at a home at 29371 Bay Ave., Moreno Valley, about 90 minutes after the stabbing, which was reported about 12:35 a.m. Friday, according to a Riverside County sheriff's news release.
Fernandez was being held at Larry Smith jail on suspicion of attempted murder and obstructing a peace officer; he remained in custody in lieu of $1 million bail, pending a Wednesday court appearance, jail records indicate.
His alleged victim, a man in his 60s who is a relative of the suspect, suffered multiple stab wounds and was treated and released from a hospital, sheriff's officials stated.
Deputies were called to the home in the 2700 block of Tuberose Drive, in San Jacinto to investigate an assault with a deadly weapon, a sergeant wrote in the news release.
They found the victim had been stabbed; further investigation determined that the men had argued about Fernandez living in the San Jacinto home, the sergeant said.
The suspect left the home but returned with a kitchen knife, authorities said, and attacked the other man.
Family members provided authorities with the Moreno Valley address, where they sent Moreno Valley police to capture him.
Fernandez allegedly refused to surrender and a dog was sent in to get him; he was treated at a local hospital for injuries inflicted by the dog and released to deputies for booking, the sergeant said.
