Previously: Victim Of Fatal Noe Valley Stabbing Identified
San Francisco police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect or suspects in the fatal stabbing of a 30-year-old man in the city’s Noe Valley neighborhood last week.
Charles McAleer-Bonilla was stabbed on April 8 at about 8:50 p.m. on the threshold of his home at 305 28th St., according to police.
Arriving officers found McAleer-Bonilla suffering from multiple stab wounds. He was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead about an hour later, police said.
Investigators believe one or more suspects may have been injured during the stabbing, and left the scene bleeding. A trail of blood four blocks long was discovered by investigators from the scene of the crime.
The trail went west on 28th Street, south on Noe Street, west on Valley Street, and then south to 29th Street where it stopped, according to police.
The amount of blood would indicate a somewhat severe injury that may have required medical aid. Police Lt. Lyn Tomioka said DNA testing has been requested on the evidence, but “you don’t get immediate results from that.”
Investigators do not know if McAleer-Bonilla knew the suspect or if it was a random act of violence.
Ray Sargoni, who also lives in the 300 block of 28th Street, said he was concerned about the stabbing, which happened in the typically peaceful neighborhood.
“We don’t know if it was random, or domestic violence or what, and unfortunately police aren’t giving us anything,” Sargoni said.
Tomioka said police have no other information about the homicide, the city’s 14th of the year.
Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call police Inspector Cagney at (415) 734-3181, Inspector Delahunty at (415) 553-1336, or Inspector Martinovich at (415) 734-5405.
