Accused stabber to trial for post-49ers game attack
February 28, 2014, 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 in September will stand trial for 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. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges but was held to answer Thursday after a preliminary hearing.

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.

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 28-year-old 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 bleeding from seven stab wounds.

Semenza remains in custody without bail and returns to court March 14 to enter a Superior Court plea.
