Man Dies in Stabbing at Arroyo Burro Beach

The scene near the Boathouse Restaurant draws hundreds of bystanders

A Santa Barbara County man died Thursday night in a stabbing at Arroyo Burro Beach, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.

The scene unfolded near the Boathouse Restaurant on Hendry’s Beach, where Santa Barbara police officers responded to a call about 6:30 p.m. reporting a fight. When officers arrived, a crowd of 200 to 300 people had gathered around the wounded man, who was bleeding heavily.

Paramedics arrived on scene and transported the man, in his 40s, to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, where he died.

Detectives are investigating the incident as a homicide and have gathered evidence and witness statements. As of Friday afternoon, the Sheriff’s Department has not released the victim’s name.

They ask that anyone with any information regarding the case call 805.681.4150, or if a person wishes to remain anonymous, to call the Sheriff’s Anonymous Tip Line at 805.681.4171 and leave a message.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
