Man charged with attempting to murder friend after 49ers game
September 26, 2013, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Dustin Semenza

A Santa Barbara man who reportedly stabbed his friend during an argument after attending a San Francisco 49ers game told the victim’s brother that “s— got crazy,” according to prosecutors who charged him yesterday with attempted murder.

Dustin Semenza, 28, is also charged with assault with a deadly weapon and is accused of using premeditation and causing great bodily injury in the attack. In court yesterday, Semenza asked for a court-appointed attorney and put off a plea until Oct. 9.

South San Francisco police arrested Semenza early Monday morning after responding to the Residence Inn at 1350 Veterans Blvd. around 2 a.m. on reports of a stabbing in his room. They found his 28-year-old friend bleeding profusely on the floor from seven stab wounds, two in his chest and the others on his lower back, legs and arms.

The victim’s brother said the three had come from Santa Barbara for the football game. After, he and Semenza went to San Francisco for drinking while the man returned to the hotel room. The victim called them later, asking them to come back with snacks, but after they arrived he and Semenza reportedly got into a heated argument because they hadn’t originally accompanied him to the hotel. The brother left for the elevator and Semenza joined him shortly after, saying ‘s— got crazy, don’t worry about it,’” said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.

The brother returned to the room to check on the victim and found him injured.

Police said Semenza claimed he didn’t know what had happened and “it all happened in his sleep,” Guidotti said.

He remains in custody without bail.
