Search is on for stabbing suspects

SANTA MARIA, Calif. -

Santa Maria police are investigating two stabbings that have happened in the city in the last week. They are asking for your help in finding the suspects.

Police are saying the stabbing at the 7Eleven on North Broadway was unprovoked and the suspect is considered to be armed and dangerous.

Police say a man walked into the store on June 7 just before midnight and stabbed someone.

This case concerns investigators a great deal because there does not seem to be any connection between the suspect and the victim.

The department is also working on another stabbing case.

This one happened yesterday afternoon on the 700 block of South Pine Street.

Witnesses said 31-year-old Jose de Jesus Amariba and the victim got into an argument and Amariba cut the victim several times with a machete.

“Either one of them or both of them could have been fatal. Just a slight placement, especially the one from last night. Those are severe, severe lacerations caused by this machete blow,” said Santa Maria Police Lt. Kim Graham.

Both victims in the two cases survived the attacks.

Police are considering both suspects to be armed and dangerous. If you have any information, you are urged to contact the Santa Maria Police Department.

    Orcutt Family Starts Petition to Change County Ordinance

    An Orcutt family is fighting to keep their dogs from being euthanized, and is now trying to change a county ordinance on aggressive dogs. The family has an online petition spreading their message on the internet in an effort to get the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's attention.

    Peggy Henning remembers the day her family welcomed Daisy and Duke into their family like it was yesterday.

    "They immediately just became part of the family," said Henning. "They were very friendly with all the guests we had coming over."

    But things changed when Daisy and Duke got loose. They liked chasing cats.

    "Dogs are pack animals and that is their default instinct," said Henning. "If they are bonded or litter mates, it intensifies that. They would get out of the confines of our house or yard and this instinct would come to the surface."
