Detectives investigating the scene interviewed witnesses and later identified the woman’s boyfriend, Eduardo Robles, 23, of Lompoc, as a suspect in the stabbing. A warrant was quickly issued for his arrest.

Robles is described as Hispanic, 6 feet tall, approximately 200 to 230 pounds, with hazel eyes and brown hair.
