Suspect arrested in man's murder
Police arrested a Huntington Beach resident on suspicion of
beating and stabbing to death the boyfriend of his estranged wife in
an apartment on Portview Circle last week.
Officers found 19-year-old Sergio Ojeda dead on the back-bedroom
floor of the apartment in the 20300 block after responding to two 911
calls at 7:19 and 7:22 a.m. Nov. 6.
John Salcida, 22, was found in the bathroom along with his
estranged wife. Salcida's face and neck were covered with blood as a
result of what were apparently self-inflicted wounds, Capt. Dan
Johnson said. The woman, whose name wasn't released because of a
domestic violence incident with Salcida two weeks earlier, was
extremely distraught but had suffered no injuries, Johnson said.
Salcida was first taken to UCI Medical Center and then transferred
to the county hospital jail ward at Western Medical Center. He was
released from the hospital and taken to Orange County Jail with no
bail after recovering from his injuries on Monday. Police booked
Salcida on suspicion of murder and kidnapping.
Police heard only a hysterical woman during the first call before
the line cut out. They received another call a few minutes later from
a man who said he'd just killed his wife's boyfriend, Johnson said.
Police recognized the address from the incident two weeks earlier,
when they had arrested Salcida on suspicion of domestic violence. He
was out on bail with a trial pending.
Salcida had apparently hit himself on the head and face with a
hard object and had slashed his own throat by the time police
forcibly entered the apartment, Johnson said.
