A party in Rocklin turned deadly over the weekend. Saturday night, Rocklin Police Officers responded to Swan Court in response to a 9-1-1 call about a reported stabbing victim. A 51-year-old male was found within the house and was bleeding from his chest. An AMR ambulance crew transported the subject to Sutter Roseville Medical Center where he died a short time later.
Captain Lon Milka with the Rocklin Police Department says Detectives responded to the scene and determined that, during a party at the Swan Court residence, an argument between the victim and a 20 year old male occurred. The argument turned into a physical altercation in which the victim was stabbed in the chest with a knife.
An investigation by detectives led to the arrest of a Rocklin man. Zachary Raymond Kachmar, 20 years, was arrested for murder and was booked into the Placer County Jail. He is being held without bail. This is the first homicide in Rocklin since 2007.
Rocklin Police are not releasing the name of the victim at this time.
