Man Charged in Stabbing Death at Sylmar Party

Councilman Richard Alarcon wins support to create a 'party patrol' in response to the weekend stabbing.

A 20-year-old man was charged Tuesday with the murder of a Sun Valley man who was fatally stabbed at a birthday party in Sylmar.

David Gage Silva of Sylmar was ordered to remain jailed on $1 million bail pending arraignment Nov. 14 in San Fernando Superior Court.

Silva is charged with the slaying of 19-year-old Anthony Hernandez, who was stabbed about 1:30 a.m. Sunday at the end of a birthday party held in the 13000 block of Sayre Street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The party was winding down when an argument and a fight broke out in the backyard, police said.

Hernandez -- the friend of an invited guest -- died a short time later at a local hospital.

Silva, who had been invited to the party, was arrested later that afternoon by Los Angeles police.

"This latest party incident occurred in spite of deploying three police units around the Northeast Valley to monitor parties on this weekend before Halloween," Los Angeles police Lt. Paul Vernon said. "But the police patrols wouldn't have made a difference regardless for this incident as there had been no complaints about this party."

The stabbing took place within the district of Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon, whose jurisdiction sees 2,100 parties a year, according to the Daily News.

In response to the weekend stabbing, a motion by the councilman to divert $46,000 toward creating a "party patrol" won approval from his peers, the Daily News reports.

The funds would go toward boosting police responses to party complaints as well as allowing officers to work with party hosts to control the size of such gatherings, the publication reports.

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.
