Ex-Boyfriend Arrested in Stabbing

Ex-Boyfriend Arrested in Stabbing

Santa Barbara – As no less an august romantic than William Shakespeare said in Much Ado About Nothing, “Love goes by haps. some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.” Surely the eternal verity of that predicament has come to mind for Daniel Adam Jasso, 24, a Santa Barbara resident.

Jasso was arrested late in the evening of Sunday, May 24th pursuant to what Santa Barbara Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Riley Harwood described as 911 Emergency call reporting “a domestic disturbance involving a woman screaming.” When officers arrived on the West Padre Street scene, they were met by a female who was in the company of a 24-year old young man suffering multiple non-life threatening stab wounds, one of which was a puncture wound to the chest. Both the female, which investigation established had at one time been in a romantic relationship with Jasso, and the male victim—her current boyfriend—identified the attacker as Jasso.

The female and the victim indicated that Jasso had arrived at the apartment and, when he was refused entry into the premises, forced his way in, whereupon “Jasso and the victim then fought inside the apartment,” at which time Jasso produced a weapon and inflicted the injuries apparent to officers at the scene.

The ensuing investigation, conducted by the SBPD Crimes Against Persons Unit, led to the issuance of a felony arrest warrant for Jasso which was served on him just ten hours later, in the morning of May 25th. He was then taken into custody and transported to Santa Barbara County Jail where he was booked on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, with his bail set at $30,000.
