ONTARIO, Calif. – An Ontario man was arrested for two stabbings at two different Ontario parks on Wednesday.
At around 10:20 a.m. the suspect, David Joseph Moreno, 27, attacked a man with a knife at De Anza Park without provocation, officials said. The victim fought Moreno off but suffered non-life-threatening injuries to his neck.
Moreno then drove to Cypress park and found a second male victim who authorities said that he knew before the attack and stabbed him. The man was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries from the stabbing.
Moreno was identified by police as the suspect involved in the stabbing. Ontario Police located and arrested Moreno on Wednesday at around 1:00 p.m. near Euclid Avenue and Budd Street. He was found to be in possession of a knife and was booked into jail for two counts of attempted murder.
Taylor Willis, 21, of Rancho Cucamonga, Moreno’s girlfriend, was with him at the time of arrest and was arrested for accessory to attempted murder. Willis was subsequently released pending further investigation.
