A Rialto man was arrested Sunday in Banning on two warrants, one alleging domestic violence offenses and the other connected to a homicide, Banning police said Monday.
Daniel Sanchez 37, was temporarily staying at 520 N. Martin St. and Banning police went to the neighborhood Sunday March 31, according to Banning Chief of Police Leonard Purvis.
Banning police officers "established a perimeter and initiated a search," Purvis said in a news release. "A short time later, Sanchez was located in a bedroom at 520 North Martin Street and taken into custody without incident."
Sanchez had an outstanding warrant issued by the United States Marshals Office for violating terms of an unspecified homicide conviction, according to the news release. The domestic violence warrant was from Rialto.
Asked for details about the homicide warrant Monday, Purvis said in a phone interview, "It's probation violation, and the original charge is homicide. He's held on no bail for that one. I'm told there's some link to Mexico. He may have served some of the sentence there and some of it here."
Sanchez was also held Monday April 1 at Smith Correctional on suspicion of assault with a firearm on a person and inflicting corporal injury on a spouse/cohabitant. His bail for those charges was listed at $150,000, but the hold on the homicide warrant meant Sanchez was held without bail.
