On early Sunday morning, January 12, 2014, Palmdale Sheriff’s Station responded to a call reporting a suspect fighting with people in the area and a possible stabbing victim at the location. Once on scene, deputies determined the suspect [Cesar Jovany Linares ] had cut and stabbed his father during an argument.
The suspect was in the front yard when deputies arrived, but refused to follow their instructions and fled into the house [11200 Block of East Avenue R-8, Littlerock].
The Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB) and Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) also responded to the location while Palmdale Station personnel deployed an armored vehicle to the scene, contained the location, and evacuated neighboring homes. A search warrant was also obtained for the location.
Hours later at 8:10 AM, CNT personnel established communication with the suspect and convinced him to exit the location at about 8:35 AM. The suspect was taken into custody without incident by SEB personnel.
He was booked at Palmdale Station for Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Obstructing/Delaying Peace Officers. He is being held in lieu of $30,000 bail and is due to appear in court on January 14, 2014 at Antelope Valley Courthouse.
The victim’s injuries were not considered life-threatening. He was treated by paramedics at the scene.
