Man arrested in fatal Garden Grove stabbing
A 25-year-old Tustin man is in custody after being accused of stabbing another man to death in the stomach late Sunday night, police said.
Ubaldo Gutierrez, of Tustin, is suspected of stabbing the still-unidentified man at 10:29 p.m. inside a home in the 11000 block of Mount Drive in Garden Grove, authorities said.
Police and firefighters, responding to a 911 call, said they found the victim with a single stab wound to his stomach.
He was taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange for surgery, but died at around 5 a.m. Monday.
Gutierrez, who had fled the scene, was later located at a home in Santa Ana and detained by local police without incident.
He’s expected to be in court Wednesday at West Justice Center in Westminster. The laborer is being held on $1 million bail.
