Stabbing suspect found dead by police

GROVER BEACH, CA – A man sought in connection with a stabbing incident in Grover Beach over the weekend has been discovered deceased in Kern County, as confirmed by the Grover Beach Police Department. The stabbing took place shortly before noon on Saturday, prompting a swift response from law enforcement.

Authorities were alerted to a disturbance involving two vehicles along the 1700 block of Ramona Ave. Upon arrival, officers found only witnesses present at the scene. However, subsequent developments revealed a victim who had sustained multiple stab wounds. This injured individual was promptly transported to a medical facility and is reportedly in stable condition as of Monday, according to the police.

The alleged assailant, identified as 55-year-old Robert Dean Poirier of Grover Beach, was captured on video fleeing the scene in a minivan. Law enforcement, after reviewing community surveillance footage, located the van that same night. A vehicle stop was conducted, but after interviews with the occupants, it was determined that none of them were connected to the earlier altercation, and they were subsequently released.

Tragically, Robert Dean Poirier’s journey following the stabbing led him to Kern County, where he was found deceased on Monday by authorities from the Kern County Sheriff’s Office. While additional details about the circumstances of his death remain undisclosed, law enforcement has stated that foul play is not suspected at this time.

The motive behind the stabbing, which transpired on Saturday, remains the subject of an ongoing investigation. The police are actively seeking to interview witnesses who may hold crucial information regarding the incident.

In the wake of this developing situation, authorities are working diligently to piece together the events that unfolded during that fateful Saturday.
