Man arrested in deadly Poway stabbing

POWAY, Calif. - A 30-year-old  homeless man was arrested on suspicion he stabbed a man to death in Poway over the weekend, sheriff's deputies said.

Kevin Talbott, a transient from the Poway area, matched the description of a possible suspect in the homicide, sheriff's Lt. Rich Williams said.

Talbott was arrested Sunday and booked into the San Diego Central jail on a murder charge. Talbott was being held without bail.

Deputies responded to a 911 call of a stabbing at a 7-Eleven store in the 12000 block Pomerado Road just after 1:30 a.m., where they found a man with a "traumatic injury,'' Williams said.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died. His name was withheld pending notification of kin.

Deputies asked anyone with information about the incident to call the Sheriff's Department Homicide Detail at 858-974-2321 / after hours at 858-565-5200, or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
