Sacramento Sheriff's Make Arrests in Foothill Farm Stabbing Murder

March 23, 2017 |  

Late last night a North Highlands man was arrested for a Tuesday night murder in the Foothill Farms area.

The suspect, Souksavanh Phetvongkham, 43, of North Highlands was taken into custody without incident near the intersection of Madison Avenue and Jackson Street. He was located by detectives of the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau. 

A little after 8 p.m. on March 21, the Sheriff’s Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a physical fight between two males in the area of Madison Avenue and Jackson Street in Sacramento.

Deputies responded to the area and were unable to locate any fight or victims. Approximately 20 minutes later, a male victim in his early 30’s was transported by private vehicle and arrived at a local hospital. 

The victim was suffering from multiple stab wounds and was rushed into the emergency room in critical condition. The victim succumbed to his injuries hours later and was pronounced deceased at the hospital.

It was later determined through witness statements the victim was one of the parties involved in the fight on Jackson Street. 

Phetvongkham was arrested for murder and booked into the Sacramento County Jail. He is currently ineligible for bail, and is scheduled to be arraigned on March 27, 2017.

The identity of the victim in this case will be made available by the Sacramento County Coroner’s office, after notification has been made to his next of kin.
