Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two brothers Saturday in connection with the stabbing of a 28-year-old man at a Santa Rosa tattoo parlor.

Baldomero Anguiano-Vazquez, 33, of Cloverdale, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and conspiracy, the sheriff’s office said in a statement. His brother, Jesus Anguiano-Vazquez, 22, of Santa Rosa, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, deputies said.

The 5:30 p.m. stabbing at Twisted Image Tattoos on Santa Rosa Avenue happened after an employee tried to intervene when the two brothers, who were customers, verbally disrespected a woman in the shop, deputies said.

Baldomero Anguiano-Vazquez repeatedly stabbed the unidentified employee in the chest with a straight blade knife, deputies said. The man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where he underwent immediate surgery and was in stable condition Sunday, deputies said.

Deputies spotted the brothers on Yolanda Avenue near the northbound Highway 101 on-ramp as they fled in a white Jeep that matched the description witnesses provided. Both men were booked into Sonoma County Jail on $1 million bail each, Lt. Ruben Martinez said.

A third man in the Jeep was released after detectives interviewed him, the sheriff’s office said.
