The Port of San Diego Harbor Police Department announces an arrest has been made in a stabbing that occurred in Embarcadero Marina Park South.

On May 9, 2018 at approximately 12:02 a.m., Harbor Police officers responded to a 911 call to the park at 200 Marina Park Way, San Diego, CA 92101. Witnesses reported a male had stabbed another male multiple times with a knife inside the men’s restroom. Arriving within minutes of the call, Harbor Police officers located the victim and transported him to a local hospital with serious injuries. The suspect had left the park before officers arrived.

Using DNA evidence recovered from the scene, Harbor Police detectives identified Robert Alexander Perez, born January 26, 1982, as the suspect and issued an arrest warrant. On August 11, 2018, San Diego Police officers arrested Perez at Saint Vincent De Paul and booked him on attempted murder. The victim has recovered from his injuries.
