SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A 28-year-old Santa Barbara man was arrested Monday on suspicion of stabbing his friend during an argument at a South San Francisco hotel, a police spokesman said.
The suspect, Dustin Semenza, 28, was staying with two friends at a Residence Inn at 1350 Veterans Blvd. when the incident occurred, South San Francisco police Sgt. Bruce McPhillips said.
The three men were in the Bay Area to attend the 49ers football game on Sunday, McPhillips said.
At around 2 a.m. Monday, South San Francisco police and fire personnel responded to reports of a stabbing at Semanza’s hotel room, McPhillips said.
Semenza had allegedly gotten into an argument with one of his friends and stabbed him several times in the torso, McPhillips said.
The victim, also 28 years old, was taken to a trauma center where he underwent surgery and was reported to be in stable condition, according to police.
Both men were apparently intoxicated at the time of the argument, McPhillips said.
Semenza was arrested at the scene and booked into San Mateo County Jail for attempted murder. He is being held without bail.
