Sources say that a California man beheaded a young woman in the middle of a San Carlos street in front of witnesses on Thursday.

The San Mateo Co. Sheriff’s Department said the crime happened in the 300-400 block of Laurel Street and Magnolia Avenue at 11:50 a.m.

During a press conference, Lieutenant Eamon Allen said that the crime happened in the street outside the victim’s residence.

Liutenant Allen said that the victim had two children, who did not witness the crime, and sources say the kids were inside the house at the time.

The two were in an ongoing relationship but law enforcement sources say the victim got a temporary restraining order against the suspect, Hayward resident Jose Solano Landaeta, in April.

“They arrived within minutes and found an obviously deceased female in the street in that area,” said Lt. Allen during a press conference. “They began to work the scene and shortly then after, the male suspect arrived back at the scene and was quickly detained by sheriff’s deputies. He was later placed under arrest for homicide. We can confirm that a stabbing instrument was used in the commission of the crime. That weapon is still outstanding.”

The search for that weapon is still ongoing. The suspect suffered a medical emergency of some sort but details are limited.

Sources say there was a history of domestic violence at the address where the woman was killed.

Officials are providing peer support to both first responders and a group of witnesses who saw this tragic situation unfold.

There’s still an active crime scene, with this community in shock. Many are only returning from work now, learning about that young mother who was beheaded in the middle of the street, in the middle of the day.

The victim’s name is being withheld pending family notification.
