A 21-year-old man was taken into custody Friday for an alleged slashing attack that injured his father, mother and 14-year-old sister at the family’s Stanton home.
Thomas Oakland Kuranda Jr. was booked on suspicion of attempted murder, corporal injury, making criminal threats and assault with a deadly weapon, according to Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. Bail was set at $500,000 for Kuranda, who’s expected to be arraigned on Monday.
Deputies were called about 12:50 a.m. to the 11100 block of Irwin Drive and found the three injured family members, along with the suspect’s girlfriend, who had a facial wound, according to the sheriff’s department.
The suspect’s 53-year-old father was the most severely injured, and the other three were treated for “mild to moderate injuries,” Braun said, adding that none of the injuries were considered life-threatening.
Kuranda got into an argument with relatives that escalated into a physical conflict, in which he allegedly used some sort of a blade, like a box cutter, to slash his father, 57-year-old mother and teenage sister, Braun said.
All of the victims live in the residence, as does the suspect.
