Man arrested on suspicion of stabbing brother in Rowland Heights

A Rowland Heights man was arrested Thursday after he allegedly stabbed his brother and his brother’s pregnant girlfriend during an argument.

The man barricaded himself in the house but later surrendered to deputies.

The stabbing was first reported about 2:55 p.m. in the 18000 block of Los Palacios Drive.

Lt. John Saleeby of the sheriff’s Walnut/Diamond Bar station said crisis negotiators were on the phone with the suspect prior to his surrender.

David Campos, 21, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. He was being held at the sheriff’s Walnut/Diamond Bar station in lieu of $30,000 bail.

Saleeby didn’t know what sparked the dispute between the siblings.

The victims were flown by helicopter to Los Angeles County USC Medical Center, where Saleeby said Friday both were expected to survive. The lieutenant said the brother was in “guarded” condition while the woman was listed in stable condition. Her fetus was not believed to have been harmed.
