A 22-year-old Pleasanton man is recovering, listed in stable condition, after sustaining three stab wounds Saturday at his house party, according to police. Brian Turner, a 20-year-old Dublin resident, was arrested for allegedly stabbing Rohit Pathak three times after refusing to leave.
Police responded to Pathak's residence, near Bernal Avenue and Interstate 680, and found him on the ground outside the house, unconscious and bleeding heavily. He was transported to Eden Trauma Center in Castro Valley via ambulance.
Following a trail of blood, police detained Turner minutes later, who reportedly had a large amount of blood on his clothes and a serious cut to one of his fingers by way of his own knife, according to a police report.
After interviewing attendees, police said Turner knew a partygoer arrived uninvited to the party, having previously consumed alcohol. Pathak had come outside, telling Turner to leave and reportedly an argument ensued resulting in Pathak challenging Turner to a fight. The report claims Pathak removed his shirt and Turner attacked Pathak, stabbing him once in the left shoulder and slashing twice across the chest with a 2 1/2-inch Buck knife. Police said one of the stab wounds penetrated his chest cavity.
Turner was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and was booked at Santa Rita Jail after receiving stitches for the cut to his hand at ValleyCare Medical Center.
