A Los Osos man was arrested Friday for allegedly stabbing a Lompoc woman multiple times.

On Thursday evening, a caller reported a woman on a Highway 101 offramp in Gaviota with multiple stab wounds to her face and neck. CHP officers determined 33-year-old Timothy Alcantar had stabbed the women with a screwdriver while she was driving.

The woman pulled over and ran from the car, which Alcantar drove away.

Emergency personnel transported the victim to Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara for treatment of her injuries.

On Friday, CHP officers arrested Alcantar in Lompoc on charges of car theft, corporal injury to a spouse, assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder. He remains in the Santa Barbara County Jail with his bail set a $1 million.

“CHP officers determined 33-year-old Timothy Alcantar had stabbed the women with a screwdriver while she was driving.” Wow! This is efficient law enforcement. Find the suspect, “determine” guilt, done. Oh, wait… they didn’t impose a penalty. That would have been really efficient. Oh, maybe they did. A million dollar fine, or incarceration in perpetuity. Seems fair.

Wait…we don’t know his side of the story.

Right!? For all we know this could be some attempt to ruin his career. Let’s wait to hear his side of the story before the cancel culture crew shows up.

Honestly, you don’t know “his side” of the story, or the whole story at all. This person could very well be mentally ill. That would change how he is viewed, and likely the consequences of his actions. Quit acting like it’s a black and white world.
