Stabbing victim has criminal history
BAKERSFIELD, CA - Bakersfield Police say the man allegedly stabbed by a 16-year-old girl in southwest Bakersfield over the weekend has a criminal history of violence.
On Monday, police identified the man as 35-year-old Manuel A. Hernandez.
Blood spatter covered the door of the home in the 7200 block of Three Rivers Drive, where the stabbing happened early Sunday morning. Neighbors said it's in a new housing development at the edge of southwest Bakersfield.
Online phone book records and police information confirm Manuel Hernandez lived at the home.
Police say the 16-year-old stabbed Hernandez around 1 a.m. Sunday. Bakersfield Police call it a domestic violence incident, but say the two are not related.
We know very little about the teen, but here's what we found out about Hernandez on Monday. Court documents show in 1995, Manuel Hernandez was arrested and convicted of voluntary manslaughter. Eleven years later, Hernandez was arrested again. This time, he was charged with inflicting injury on a spouse, threatening with intent to terrorize, and disabling a telephone or power line. Those charges were dismissed, but Hernandez was convicted of false imprisonment with violence and sentenced to two years and eight months in prison.
As of Sunday, police say Hernandez was in stable but critical condition. Also on Sunday, the teen was arrested and booked into Kern County Juvenile Hall for attempted murder. But, police say the case has not been referred to the district attorney, and officers don't not know if the teen will be charged.
