Arrest Made in Woodrick Way Homicide

Homicide detectives arrested Jacob Sanabria, 21, of Sacramento this morning for the stabbing death of a 31-year-old male, which occurred in the late evening hours of June 24th.

A little after 11:15 p.m. on June 24, 2017, the Sheriff’s Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a stabbing which occurred inside a residence located in the 7000 block of Woodrick Way in Sacramento.

Deputies responded to the residence and located a 31-year-old male suffering from a stab wound to the upper torso.  Deputies immediately began life saving measure.  Sacramento Metro Fire responded and transported the victim to a local hospital.  The victim succumbed to his injury and was pronounced deceased at the hospital.  Deputies detained Sanabria at the scene without incident.  Both Sanabria and the victim lived at the residence.  The victim was a long time live-in boyfriend of Sanabria’s mother.  It appears at this stage of the investigation that Sanabria’s attack may have been unprovoked.

Sanabria was arrested for murder and booked at the Sacramento County Main Jail.  He is currently ineligible for bail, and is scheduled to be arraigned on June 27, 2017.

The identity of the victim in this case will be made available by the Sacramento County Coroner’s office, after notification has been made to his next of kin.
