Sheriff’s deputies in Half Moon Bay arrested a 20-year-old man on Thursday in connection with the stabbing of another man earlier that day in a shopping center parking lot. According to San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt, Francisco Miramontes of Half Moon Bay was located at his home and arrested at about 5 p.m. Thursday.
Rosenblatt said deputies responded to a call at about 1:40 p.m. Thursday about a man who had been stabbed in the arm in the parking lot of the Strawflower Village Shopping Center, located on North Cabrillo Highway. The victim told deputies that he was sitting in his truck when a young Hispanic man uttered a gang-related statement, then stabbed him.
The suspect then ran out of the parking lot, according to Rosenblatt. Through their investigation, deputies identified Miramontes and arrested him in connection with the stabbing and assault with a deadly weapon. The victim was transported to the hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered to be life-threatening. Miramontes was booked into Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City.
