Man Pleads Guilty to Stabbing Spree in Anaheim

SANTA ANA (CNS) –  A 25-year-old man pleaded guilty and was immediately sentenced Thursday to 20 years in prison for stabbing two men and two women in Anaheim.

Gino Liam Fuentes, who has been in custody since July 4, 2017, pleaded guilty to four counts of attempted murder and single counts each of criminal threats and inflicting injury on an elder adult, all felonies. He also admitted sentencing enhancements for inflicting great bodily injury, personal use of a deadly weapon and attempted premeditated murder.

Officers were dispatched at 11:11 a.m. July 4, 2017, to a home in the 100 block of West Bluebell Avenue, near Orangewood Avenue, police said.

When officers arrived they found two men, aged 25 and 55, and two women, one 66 and the other 48, suffering from stab wounds, according to police.

Fuentes was taken into custody about a mile from the scene, police said, noting that a neighbor helped stop the stabbing spree by striking the assailant with a baseball bat and a crowbar.
