Employee of care facility accused of stabbing co-worker

Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies arrested an employee of the Hillside House on Thursday, after they say he stabbed a co-worker.

Hillside House is a residential care facility for the developmentally disabled, located on Veronica Springs Road in Santa Barbara.

Investigators say Evodio Garcia, 62, had been having problems getting along with another employee for the past several years. On Thursday, they say the two challenged each other to a fight. While walking through the facility's kitchen, investigators say Garcia grabbed a large knife and began stabbing the victim.

Sheriff's officials say a supervisor intervened to stop the attack.

Garcia faces attempted murder charges.
