Inked Suspect Arrested in Stabbing at Bar

On January 5, 2012, Sheriff’s deputies arrested a suspect in a bar attack several days earlier that sent one man to the hospital with a stab wound and another with a head injury. David Kirkland, 32, was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and battery with serious bodily injury.

Kirkland is also being held on an abeyance hold, pursuant to his post-release community supervision status. He is currently being held on $245,000 bail.

On January 2, 2012, shortly before 11:30 p.m., Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Blues Club bar in the 6700 block of Rio Linda Boulevard regarding a man stabbed. Deputies found a 24 year-old male with a knife wound to his abdomen, and a 42 year-old male who had been assaulted with an unknown object. Both victims were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Deputies obtained a description of the suspect, who had fled the scene prior to their arrival.

On January 5, 2012, shortly before 4:30 p.m., deputies responded to a call from security personnel at Mercy San Juan Hospital, regarding Kirkland being inside the building. Kirkland had also been observed at the hospital the day before, but left prior to deputies’ arrival. 

Upon arriving at the hospital, deputies encountered Kirkland, who matched the description of the suspect in the attack at the bar. Kirkland was later positively identified by one of the victims as the individual who had assaulted him.
Investigation into this case remains ongoing. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Department’s Crimes Against Persons Bureau at (916) 874-5070.
