Milpitas Police arrest suspect who fatally stabbed victims in Milpitas & San Jose

Earlier today, June 1, at 4:30 in the afternoon, a 911 call came in to the Milpitas Police Department (MPD) reporting a stabbing in the Smart and Final parking lot on Jacklin Road’s 400 block. Before police arrived less than one minute later, the suspect had already fled.

The stabbing victim died at a nearby hospital.

MPD officers canvassed the surrounding area, then found the suspect hiding in a residential area not far from the source of the initial call. The suspect was arrested without incident. 

As the investigation unfolded, police came to learn of a similar pair of crimes being investigated in San Jose… 

In San Jose, at Kooser Road and Dellwood Way, one victim was stabbed and sustained life-threatening injuries at 3:11pm. The suspect then went to Hillsdale Avenue’s 1800 block, where at around 3:31pm they stabbed another person, carjacked that person’s car, then hit yet another person with the car while driving away. The second stabbing victim’s injuries were also life-threatening; the car crash victim’s injuries were not. 

News reports say all three stabbing victims died. 

San Jose authorities believe the suspect also to be linked to other acts of violence that occurred in their city today. 

Said MPD in a statement, “This is an ongoing homicide investigation, detectives from our Criminal Investigations Bureau are currently piecing together the sequence of events.”

People with info regarding these incidents can call MPD at (408) 586-2400. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call the Crime Tip Hotline: (408) 586-2500. An online contact portal is available at https://www.milpitas.gov/crimetip.
