Man suspected of stabbing brother with scissors in Rosemead

ROSEMEAD — Deputies arrested a Rosemead man on suspicion of stabbing his brother several times with a pair of scissors, officials said Saturday
Deonisio Peralta, 27, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Walker said.
His brother, 33-year-old Alejandro Garcia, suffered four to five stab wounds to his abdomen, Walker said, however the wounds were not believed to be life-threatening.
The alleged attack took place about 4:45 p.m. Friday in the 8800 block of Marshall Street, the sergeant said.
Peralta was drunk at his home when he put his arm around Garcia and became offended when the older brother told him to stop it, Walker said.
Peralta retrieved a small pair of scissors from his home and used them to attack his brother, he said.
The suspect initially fled the scene, Walker added, but as deputies were investigating the incident, Peralta returned to the home and was arrested.
According to sheriff’s booking records, Peralta was being held in lieu of $30,000 bail at the sheriff’s Temple Station jail. He was due for arraignment Tuesday in El Monte Superior Court.
