Police Thursday released the names of a man who died in a knife attack at a Southcrest-area transient camp and the alleged assailant, who’s due in court on Friday.
Roy Jack Bonilla, 44, of San Diego died about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at UCSD Medical Center, about an hour after he was found suffering from a stab wound to his chest near the 3400 block of Newton Avenue, San Diego Police Lt. Todd Griffin said. Witnesses led police to where Bonilla was found at a transient camp underneath a raised stretch of state Route 15.
The suspect, 28-year-old George Luis Gomez-Gama, was booked on suspicion of first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon and preventing a victim or witness from reporting a crime, jail records show.
Witnesses and bystanders helped lead police to a nearby park and helped identify Gomez-Gama as the suspect, Griffin said.
Police have not disclosed a suspected motive for the slaying.
