The new year started out violent for at least one San Luis Obispo County family, as a 20-year-old man in Nipomo allegedly stabbed a family member in a New Year’s Eve incident, the Sheriff’s Department announced in a news release.
According to the Sheriff, at about 12:52 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 1, deputies responded to a disturbance at a home in the 800 block of Southland, Nipomo.
“Upon their arrival,” the release said, “deputies discovered a 36-year-old male that had been stabbed during an apparent family disturbance. The victim sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries.”
The victim was not identified, nor was his relationship to the suspect revealed. He or she was treated at a local hospital and released.
Deputies reportedly arrested Angel Rodriguez, 20 of Nipomo on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and booked him into the County Jail.
