Santa Barbara Police Investigating Westside Stabbing

34-year-old man man stabbed multiple times in abdomen

Officers responding to a report of a robbery on Santa Barbara’s Westside on Friday found a 34-year-old man who had been stabbed, according to the Santa Barbara Police Department.

The incident was reported at about 9:15 a.m. in the 300 block of West Arrellaga Street, said Sgt. Riley Harwood, a department spokesman.

The victim was found to have suffered multiple stab wounds to his abdomen, and was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment of nonlife-threatening injuries, Harwood said.

Officers were moving in and out of Arrellaga Gardens apartment complex, questioning neighbors Friday morning, but no arrests had been made in the case.

Investigators were “still sorting out the details,” Harwood said, adding that the attack does not appear to be gang-related.

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.
