A 27-year-old Chino resident suspected of the unprovoked stabbing of a man in a doughnut shop in Maywood earlier this month was in custody Thursday on suspicion of attempted murder.
Arnold Luis Gonzalez was arrested Wednesday and was being held in lieu of $1 million bail, according to sheriff’s inmate records.
His arrest came five days after detectives from the sheriff’s East Los Angeles station released surveillance video from the business, leading to his identification as the alleged attacker .
The video shows the suspect entering Yum Yum Donuts at the intersection of Atlantic Boulevard and Slauson Avenue about 3 p.m. on Feb. 10, walking up behind the 63-year-old victim and stabbing him repeatedly in the back as the man stood at the counter.
Responding deputies found the victim with a knife lodged in his upper body, according to sheriff’s Deputy Michele Sanchez.
The unidentified man was rushed to a hospital. An update on his condition was not immediately available, but he was expected to survive.
“During the investigation, detectives also discovered the same suspect used the same weapon in other crimes after the Maywood incident,” according to a sheriff’s department statement. Details of those crimes were not immediately available.
