SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – A man was taken arrested in connection with a stabbing death in a Clairemont home Monday morning, San Diego Police said.

At around 2:30 a.m., police were called to the 5100 block of Bowden Avenue, near Derrick Drive, in response to a reported injury in the neighborhood.

ABC 10News learned that the incident was updated to an assault with a deadly weapon as officers were heading to the neighborhood.

Responding officers arrived to find a 67-year-old man, later identified as Floyd Todd Budd, inside a home with multiple stab wounds to his upper body. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 28-year-old man identified as Raul Marquez was arrested on a murder charge. According to police, the man was holding a knife and had blood on his clothing.

Officers placed a spit hood over the man’s head during the arrest process after he began threatening officers, police officials said.

SDPD Lt. Steve Shebloski said, “He became violent and began struggling with officers. No forced was used by officers, but they did place a wrap device on him for his own safety.”

Police said the suspect and the victim are extended family members and had gotten into an argument. Both were living in that house with other residents who were home at the time.

A short time later, the 10News Breaking News Tracker captured video of a woman who told ABC 10News that she was the victim’s fiancé. She was visibly upset as she spoke with officers.

SDPD investigators gathered evidence at the scene and interviewed witnesses through Monday morning.
