Brian Middleton of Wildomar was among a number of party-goers who had been drinking when he became involved in a verbal altercation with another person, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report.

The argument turned violent when Middleton allegedly stabbed the person, said Sheriff’s Sgt. David Cardoza.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for medical treatment when Middleton fled into the residence where the party was occurring, according to Cardoza.

When police arrived, Middleton refused to leave the backroom he was hiding in and surrender when he was bitten by a police dog. Afterward, police were able to take Middleton into custody without further incident, Cardoza said.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Wildomar Police Department at 951-245-3300, or after hours at 951-776-1099.
