SAN DIEGO - Former San Diego police officer and Duval County Sheriff deputy Diamante Luera, 35, was arrested Saturday morning in connection with a stabbing and the assault of two others.
Luera was taken into custody and charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Duval County Sheriff Romeo Ramirez, confirmed that Luera was a deputy with the Duval County Sheriff's Office. He left the department over five years ago.
Luera was also an officer with the San Diego Police Department until 2006, according to San Diego Police Chief Rogelio Rodriguez.
According to Rodriguez, police were dispatched to the 100 block of East North Avenue at approximately 1:57 a.m. in reference to multiple stabbings.
When police arrived, they learned Luera was at a family gathering when an argument began. The argument led to Luera allegedly stabbing his brother and cutting two women who attempted to break up the fight, Rodriguez said.
The victims were taken to the hospital.
Luera was transported to the Duval County jail where he was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
He was released from jail Sunday on a $45,000 bond.
The investigation is ongoing.
