Not guilty plea in post-49er game attempted murder
November 06, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Dustin Semenza

A Santa Barbara man who reportedly stabbed his friend during an argument after attending a San Francisco 49ers game pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Dustin Semenza, 28, is also accused of using premeditation and causing great bodily injury in the Sept. 23 attack. Although Semenza pleaded not guilty to the charges, prosecutors say he told the victim’s brother after the incident that “s— got crazy.”

South San Francisco police arrested Semenza 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. The brother returned to the room to check on the victim and found him injured.

Semenza remains in custody without bail. After entering his plea, he waived his right to a preliminary hearing within 10 days but not 60. He returns to court Dec. 20 for the hearing which is estimated to last three hours.
