COVINA - A parking lot confrontation led to a man to allegedly stab his brother-in-law in the neck outside Superior Grocers Wednesday, Police said.
The stabbing occurred in the market parking lot, 1375 N. Citrus Ave., July 10 around 10 p.m. Officers arrived and found the victim inside the store, suffering apparent stab wounds to the neck and upper chest, Covina Police said.
The victim accused brother-in-law Jesus Daniels, 22, of stabbing him with a knife.
Daniels was located shortly after at 100 E. Arrow Hwy. He was detained and was in possession of the knife believed to be used in the stabbing, Covina Police said.
Daniels was booked at 1:58 a.m. July 11 on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. However, he was released at 2:35 a.m.
Los Angeles County booking records indicate Daniels was freed on penal code section 849(B)(1), which stipulates a suspect is released when an officer is satisfied there are insufficient grounds for making a criminal complaint.
The handling detective, Ivan Ostarcevic, and Public Information Officer David Rodriguez were unavailable Friday morning to answer questions via phone.
The victim was hospitalized at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center in stable condition.
