The 38-year-old man arrested in Oakland Sunday morning after stabbing a San Leandro man with an ice-pick like instrument has been charged.
Michael Hilburn of Newark has been booked into Santa Rita Jail and charged with attempted murder, breaking and entering and fleeing police.
As previously reported on Patch, the incident began around 1:05 a.m. Sunday, police received a report of an assault in an apartment in the 600 block of Fargo Avenue.
Arriving officers found the victim, a 57-year-old man, suffering from multiple stab wounds to his upper torso.
Police say they learned the suspect, identified as Michael Hilburn, had stabbed the man with an object similar to an ice pick before fleeing the scene in a white Chevy Suburban. Hilburn reportedly knew the victim.
The victim was taken to an area hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries. He has not been identified.
