Suspect Used Wine Glass to Stab Victims: Deputies

Offcials say 24-year-old Nicholas Millican was arrested for the attacks


A 24-year-old man was in custody Sunday after Sheriff's deputies said he used the stem of a wine glass to stab three people during an attack in Spring Valley on Saturday.

Sheriff's deputies from the Lemon Grove station responded a stabbing report at a home in the 9300 block of Montemar Drive around 1 a.m., according to detective Jacob Klepach.

When deputies arrived to the scene they found three people with various slash wounds, Klepach said. 

After an initial investigation, it was determined that all three victims had been stabbed with the stem of a wine glass and each of them were transported to an area hospital.

Witnesses identified 24-year-old Nicholas Millican as the suspect behind the attacks and he was arrested by deputies, according to a media release.

Millican was booked into San Diego Central Jail on $30,000 bail for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. He is set to be arraigned on Wednesday, Jan. 25 at the El Cajon courthouse, according to jail records.

The victims, who's names were not released, are expected to survive their injuries and officials are still investigating the incident.
