“It takes a community to keep our streets safe – thank you to everyone for standing against violence.

On October 1, 2021, Daniel Solis knocked on the front door of a Linda residence and stood on the porch holding a package and pretending to have a delivery. When the 59-year-old victim opened the door, Solis pulled a knife and forced the victim back into the house, stabbing him multiple times before running from the house. The home invasion was captured by the victim’s Ring doorbell.

Personnel from Linda Fire and BiCounty Ambulance arrived and saved the victim’s life. The victim suffered a stab wound to his chest and a collapsed lung. He spent multiple days in the hospital and still suffers flashbacks from the attack.

Yuba County Sheriff’s Detective Bradon Mallory led the investigation. The video of the attack was circulated by the Sheriff’s Department and local news agencies. The video led to tips from the public that identified Daniel Solis as a suspect. Sheriff’s Deputies searched Solis’s home, locating the clothing, gloves, glasses, and package that matched the suspect in the Ring video. A bike located on the property also matched surveillance video evidence that showed the attacker fleeing the crime scene.

Deputy District Attorney Morgan Luna tried the case to a jury of twelve Yuba County citizens. After hearing all the evidence over a five day trial, the jury unanimously returned guilty verdicts on all counts, including attempted murder with enhancements for inflicting great bodily injury and using a weapon.

Yuba County Superior Court Judge Julia L. Scrogin sentenced Daniel Solis today to serve 11 years to Life in State Prison for the attempted murder and the enhancements. The motive for the attempted murder remains a mystery.

Justice does not happen by accident – it takes dedication and hard work. Thank you to the Fire and EMS personnel who saved the victim’s life. Thank you to Detective Mallory and the investigative team from the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department. Without their quick work and tips from the public this case may have gone unsolved. Thank you to the victim, who faced Mr. Solis in court and testified before the jury about what happened. Thank you DDA.”
