Time: 9:32 AM
Location: Clay Street and Cayuga Street
On 11/19/19, at 9:32 AM, the Salinas Police Department investigated a stabbing that occurred at Clay Street and Cayuga Street. The victim, 26-year-old Mariana Jurado, was leaving her home heading to work when she was attacked outside her home and stabbed by 43-year-old Garrett Scheff. Jurado did not know Scheff, and by all accounts this was a random act of violence. Jurado was taken to a local hospital by ambulance; however, she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased a short time later.
Scheff was captured and arrested a block from the scene. The case is being investigated as a homicide. Scheff was booked into Monterey County Jail on one count of murder.
