Two Pleasanton men have been arrested in connection with a stabbing in a laundromat parking lot earlier this month that sent a man to the hospital with serious injuries. The stabbing occurred on the evening of Oct. 20 in the parking lot of Plaza Speed Wash at 4241 First St., according to police.
Officers on Saturday arrested 21-year-old Franco Estay on suspicion of the stabbing. A day earlier, they had arrested 24-year-old Arturo Sanchez Jr. for allegedly acting as Estay’s getaway driver, police said. The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office has charged Estay with attempted murder and Sanchez with being an accessory to the crime. Both men were set to appear in court in Pleasanton today for arraignment. The victim, a man in his 20s, was taken to a hospital with several stab wounds to the upper body. He has since been released from the hospital, police said. Police said high-quality surveillance cameras located near the scene of the stabbing helped investigators identify the suspects.
