Update: Cambria man arrested for attempted murder 

–On Nov. 4, the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office received a call from a citizen in Cambria who had spotted the suspect from the previous night’s attempted murder in Cambria. In that incident, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a report of an assault in a transient camp off Highway 1 near Cambria Drive in Cambria. Two men at a transient camp began fighting when the victim says the suspect made threats to kill him and then hit him in the face with a hatchet. The victim received a minor laceration.

The suspect ran off and a search was conducted by multiple law enforcement agencies but the suspect was not located. The suspect was identified as 32-year-old Kellen Christopher Trimble of Cambria. Saturday morning, Trimble was seen walking along Main Street in Cambria before heading down to the creek area under the Highway 1 bridge.
