In a sweep of several homes in four cities Thursday morning, police arrested four men in connection with the stabbing death of a Diamond Bar man earlier this month.
The men, whose ages range from 18 to 21, were arrested in their homes about 7 a.m. when about 70 officers fanned out with search warrants in the largest Anaheim police sweep this year. Police also arrested four people on probation violation and other charges unrelated to the murder, police said.
Officers located several weapons at 15 homes in Anaheim, Garden Grove, Santa Ana and Buena Park. They found handguns, rifles and homemade weapons. Police said they did not know if any of the weapons were used in the April 2 slaying of Kenny K. Gullon, 37.
Gullon was stabbed during a fight that began in an alley and spilled into the street near East Orangewood Avenue and South Haster Street, Sgt. Steve Rodig said.
A friend who was with Gullon drove him to Western Medical Center-Anaheim, where he died shortly after midnight. Police said they were still investigating what may have led to the slaying.
Arrested on suspicion of murder were Robert Salazar, 21, and his brother Victor Salazar, 18, both of Anaheim; Ralph Woodworth, 21, of Garden Grove, and Anthony Martinez, 19, of Buena Park. The four were being held in lieu of $250,000 bail each in Anaheim City Jail, Rodig said. Rodig said investigators planned to present their findings to the district attorney’s office on Monday.
