HESPERIA – One arrest has been made in a stabbing that occurred in the 16000 block of Juniper Street in the City of Hesperia.
On Thursday, September 6, 2018, at around 9:40 a.m. deputies responded to the report of a stabbing. When they arrived they learned that the victim and his girlfriend were approached by several Hispanic subjects. “A Hispanic Female Adult with blue hair, heavy set, wearing a black and white shirt and blue jeans wanted to fight victim’s girlfriend,” said Hesperia Sheriff’s Spokesman Edgar Moran. “ “[The] victim did not allow the female subject to harm his girlfriend, that was when the female subject produced a four-inch knife and stabbed the victim in the left hip.”
The suspects fled the scene and after an area check, deputies were unable to locate the female suspect. The male victim was airlifted to a trauma center for treatment of his stab wound. During the investigation, a witness provided surveillance video of the incident to authorities. The surveillance was reviewed and one of the males involved hit the victim over the head with a full, open can of alcohol prior to the stabbing. The suspect, Johnny Angel Estrada, 53, a Hesperia area transient was quickly recognized by authorities.
Estrada was located behind a gas station on Main Street and 8th Avenue where he was arrested and booked at the High Desert Detention Center for Assault with a Deadly Weapon. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail and is scheduled to appear at the Victorville Superior Court on Monday, September 10, 2018. The woman has still not been identified and the case remains under investigation.
Deputies ask that anyone with information to contact the sheriff’s Hesperia Station at (760)947-1500 or phone in anonymous information to We Tip at (800)782-7463.
