A man stabbed near the Sutter Gould Medical Foundation building on Sunday succumbed to his injuries, and another man has been arrested on a murder charge.
According to police, officers were called to 600 Coffee Road to investigate a stabbing at 2:49 p.m. They found Trevor Bolton, 25, suffering from several stab wounds.
Investigators learned Bolton had been riding his skateboard with a child and an adult friend when he got into a argument with a man driving in the area.
The man, later identified as David Cutler, 23, of Modesto, pulled into the parking lot of the medical building and confronted Bolton.
“A scuffle ensued and the man stabbed the victim multiple times,” Modesto Police Department spokeswoman Heather Graves said in a news release.
Bolton ran into the Sutter Gould urgent care facility. He was taken to a hospital, where he underwent surgery. He died several hours later, Graves said.
Security guards detained Cutler. He was booked into Stanislaus County jail on a murder charge without bail. Authorities said Sunday that they had obtained surveillance video of the incident.
Bolton’s family members declined to comment Monday.
A man who said he was Bolton’s uncle left a comment on The Bee’s website saying he hopes the assailant gets the death penalty. “This maniac killed Trevor,” Mike Saunders wrote, “because he was asked to slow his car down as he drove erratically around children skateboarding.”
