City of Riverside police officers responded to the Riverside University Health System Medical Center in Moreno Valley at 3:08 a.m. after receiving reports of a man who had been brought into the hospital’s emergency room with a stab wound to his chest, Riverside PD has since reported.
The man died from his injuries within minutes of being brought to the hospital, according to RPD.
When officers arrived, they learned a woman, since identified as Brittany Juarez, 24, of Moreno Valley, had brought her ex-boyfriend, 25-year-old, Robert Emilio Minjares, also of Moreno Valley, to the hospital with the fatal knife injury.
Detectives with the Robbery – Homicide Unit, along with Specialists from the Forensics Unit, responded and assumed the investigation. They were assisted by the Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office and the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
During their preliminary investigation, officers determined the incident occurred inside the victim’s vehicle while parked at a parking lot in the 2000 block of Alessandro Boulevard in Riverside.
“Mr. Minjares and his ex-girlfriend were involved in an argument inside his vehicle and at some point during the argument she produced a knife and stabbed him in the chest,” RPD explained.
