Salida Stabbing Suspect Arrested in Stockton

Published

on

SALIDA – Authorities arrested a 31 year old man on attempted murder charges after a stabbing that took place Sunday afternoon.

At about 4:13pm authorities received a 911 call for help from a woman stating she had just been stabbed by her boyfriend. The incident happened in a parking lot on the 5300 block of Pirrone Road.

The victim was able to provide authorities with the name of a suspect, who authorities identified as Anthony Kulp of French Camp. They were also provided with a description of a vehicle in which he fled the area in.

The victim was rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries and underwent emergency surgery to save her life. Detectives responded and began to process the crime scene. Evidence, including a suspected weapon was collected at the scene.

The investigation led detectives to Manteca where they were able to interview a relative of Kulp and determine his location. Kulp was later located in a Walmart parking lot in north Stockton on Trinity Parkway, where police attempted to take him into custody.

Kulp refused to comply with police and did not exit his vehicle as ordered. A section of the parking lot was closed off as a standoff ensued with Stockton Police Officers and hostage negotiators. Authorities tried to reason with Kulp, who later agreed to surrender. He was arrested and taken back to Stanislaus County to be interviewed, and later booked into the Public Safety Center for attempted murder.

Authorities in a press release said Kulp was in custody just one day prior to the stabbing for a felony vandalism case from December 18th. Patrol deputies were called to the same victim’s home twice before where windows to a home and vehicle were smashed.

The press release went on to say Kulp was arrested on the 19th, however he was granted a zero-bail emergency release the same day due to the California Judicial Council’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is yet another example of an offender who should have been in custody and instead was set free to commit this violent act due to the zero bail policies,” a statement from Stanislaus County Sheriff Jeff Dirkse read in part. The statement continued on explaining that at the minimum Kulp should have been required to post bail before being released.

Authorities said the investigation is ongoing, and encourage anyone with information regarding this case to contact Detective Fisher at (209) 525-7083.

First lunar eclipse of the year visible across the valley

Published

on

RIPON – The lunar eclipse takes place only during a full moon when Earth is in between the sun and moon, casting a shadow on the surface of the moon. The bright colored moon which attracts spectators is only seen once every 1.5 years, estimated by NASA.

The lunar eclipse was estimated to begin its deep penumbral stage at 7:15pm on May 15, 2022. By 7:59pm it should have reached the 50% partial stage. Totality began at 8:29pm and the full color everyone was waiting to see occurred at around 9:11pm. That rare sight began to end by 9:54pm. It was 50% partial by 10:23pm and reached its deep penumbral stage by 11:10pm where it ended.

Weather for the total lunar eclipse in some areas caused some to miss out on the rare occurrence. In Ripon and Stockton light cloud coverage crossed the mid stages of the eclipse. Meanwhile in some Modesto areas it was visible. National Weather Service estimated the temperature to be in the mid 60s to upper 70s for the valley.

Although a total lunar eclipse occurs only around every 1.5 years, your next opportunity to see it again will be November 7th 2022 going on to the eighth.
