Deputies assigned to the unincorporated area of Mead Valley began investigating the fatal incident about 10:43 p.m., after receiving reports of an assault with a deadly weapon, Riverside Sheriff’s Sgt. Ben Ramirez later reported.

“Deputies arrived within minutes and located an adult male with stabbing wounds in the backyard of the residence,” explained Ramirez.

Emergency medical personnel rushed the victim to a local hospital where, despite life-saving efforts, the man succumbed to his injuries.

The victim has since been identified as Arthur Macias.

Deputies secured the residence as a crime scene at which time Perris Station and Central Homicide Unit investigators responded to the location and assumed the investigation.

“During the course of the investigation, investigators learned the victim and a family member were involved in a physical altercation prior to the stabbing,” explained Ramirez, who released no information about the person suspected of fatally stabbing the 60-year-old victim.

The sheriff’s investigation is ongoing and Ramirez said no further information will be released at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is encouraged to call Investigator Salisbury at the Perris Sheriff Station at (951) 210-1000 or Investigator Alfaro with the Central Homicide Unit at (760) 393-3528. Callers can refer to incident file number PC193110064 and can remain anonymous. Citizens may also submit a tip using the Sheriff’s Homicide Tipline online form.

(Click here to see segment of Discovery Channel documentary of Trevor’s accident.)

During his time with the sheriff’s department, Trevor worked at several different stations; including Robert Presley Detention Center, Southwest Station in Temecula, Hemet/Valle Vista Station, Ben Clark Public Safety Training Center, and Lake Elsinore Station; along with other locations.

Trevor’s assignments included Corrections, Patrol, DUI Enforcement, Boat and Personal Water-Craft based Lake Patrol, Off-Road Vehicle Enforcement, Problem Oriented Policing Team, and Personnel/Background Investigations. He finished his career while working as a Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Investigator and was a court-designated expert in child abuse and child sex-related crimes.
