April 24, 2013
South Lake Tahoe police arrested a 46-year-old man Tuesday on suspicion of multiple attacks on the same man over the past several weeks.
Anthony Corbin remained in custody at El Dorado County jail in South Lake Tahoe Tuesday afternoon after being taken into custody earlier in the day following a SWAT team warrant search of his residence on the 2400 block of William Avenue, according to police.
“In mid-March Corbin was identified as the suspect who severely beat a 34-year-old South Lake Tahoe man,” according to a Tuesday statement from the city. “The victim was left with significant injuries, including several broken bones. While the investigation into that case was being concluded, Corbin had another altercation with the same victim again yesterday, Monday, April 22nd.”
During the attack, Corbin allegedly drew a knife and threatened to kill the man, injuring a 49-year-old woman who attempted to intervene in the process. The male victim fled, according to police.
Investigators determined Corbin is an ex-felon with a violent criminal past. During the warrant search, police found a 12-gauge shotgun, a .270-caliber rifle, a .9mm handgun with high-capacity magazines and drug paraphernalia, according the statement. Corbin surrendered peacefully during the search.
Corbin was taken into custody on suspicion of being an ex-felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, assault with a deadly weapon, making criminal terrorist threats, battery with serious bodily injury and domestic violence.
Corbin is a member of the South Lake Tahoe Brotherhood Motorcycle Club, according to the statement. Police anticipate asking the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office to file an enhancement of committing crimes in the furtherance of a criminal street gang in addition to the other charges. It is unknown if Corbin has an attorney.
