Benjamin Robert Sedeno


Grover Beach police tracked down and arrested the man who allegedly stabbed a man early Saturday morning.

Shortly before 1 a.m., a 911 caller reported a stabbing in the 100 block of South 11th Street in Grover Beach. Officers arrived to find a man suffering from multiple life-threatening stab wounds.

The victim, who has known the suspect for several years, identified Benjamin Robert Sedeno, of Santa Maria, as his attacker. Sedeno, 38, fled the scene before officers arrived.

On Monday evening, Grover Beach detectives located Sedeno and arrested him without incident. Officers booked Sedeno in San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and having an outstanding warrant. Sedeno remains in custody with his bail set at $25,000.

Investigators are asking anyone who has information about the stabbing to call Sgt. Celis Rabena at (805) 473-4570 or SLO County Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.

Looks like the pen stopped working so someone scribbled it on his forehead to get the ink to flow again.

Someone with tattoos committing a violent crime? Surprise, surprise surprise!

The Picture of Pathetic.

I wonder now they recognized him…..

Why oh why is the bail so low after an attempted murder?

Looks like he was only charged with assault with a deadly weapon and not attempted murder. Regardless, good job to LEO’s for taking this guy off the streets.

“Without incident”, Many of these guys are quite at home in prison, maybe more so than on the street so it’s probable that he considers his arrest just one more trip back home to see his homies.
