Hesperia man stabbed with kitchen knife
HESPERIA • A man on probation is behind bars after he allegedly stabbed a Hesperia man multiple times with a kitchen knife, San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials said Friday.
Suspect David Richard Porter, 31, of Rancho Cucamonga, and the victim were at another Hesperia resident’s home in the 18000 block of Lindsay Street on Thursday night when Porter became very intoxicated, according to Hesperia sheriff ’s station spokeswoman Sue Rose.
“(The suspect) was disrespectful to the homeowner, and to diffuse the situation, the victim tried to get him to leave,” Rose explained.
Instead, Porter became very agitated and looked through kitchen drawers until he found a knife, Rose said. He then stabbed the victim multiple times and left the residence on foot, officials said.
Deputies responded to the scene at 12:47 a.m. on Friday and found the victim with multiple stab wounds to his head, face, chest and back, officials said.
The victim was transported by ground to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. His condition was unknown Friday evening.
While searching the area, Deputy Jeremy Vasquez apprehended Porter, officials said. He is on county probation for the charge of transporting or selling controlled substances.
Porter was booked into the Victor Valley Jail for attempted murder and revocation of probation. His bail is set at $1 million and he is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
