SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Authorities have released the name of a Sacramento homicide suspect who was arrested after a chase in Roseville that ended after he crashed into a bus.
According to the Sacramento Police Department, officers originally responded to the 6700 block of Calvine Road on Tuesday to do a welfare check and found a woman had been stabbed to death.
Neighbors didn’t know what to make of seeing flashing lights and squad cars where they live.
“It went from, like I said, two to three and I [was] just kind of fishy,” Mario Castellano, a neighbor, said.
“My first thought was my god that’s right a few houses down!” Victoria Perryman said.
A suspect was quickly identified as someone who the woman knew. Investigators were able to track the suspect to Roseville.
In Roseville, police say the suspect tried to run over an officer. He was eventually arrested after crashing into a city bus.
The suspect has been identified as 44-year-old Asghar Ehsan. Exactly how he knew the victim has not been detailed by police at this point in the investigation.
A former coworker of Eshan’s told CBS13 that he was married and had a young child.
Pieces of crime scene tape were still littering the area Wednesday morning reminding neighbors about a tragedy they never expected.
“When I found out, I was like that’s crazy. But then I got to thinking for a couple of minutes and it was a lady and possibly somebody she knew that did this to her and it’s sad,” Castellano said.
