A Voice in Pleasant Hill

Man accused of stabbing passerby in Pleasant Hill
By Roman GokhmanContra Costa Times

WALNUT CREEK — Police arrested a Walnut Creek man they believe stabbed a passerby at random and possibly himself Monday evening in the 1800 block of Oak Park Boulevard.
Sean Howard Sebastian Loveday, 18, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. He was taken to a hospital to be treated for several stab wounds to his stomach.
The incident occurred about 7 p.m., Walnut Creek police Lt. Mark Covington said.
Walnut Creek police received a report of a young man — identified as Loveday — who had run out of a house on McNutt Avenue with a knife, Covington said. By the time police responded, the man had run one block north to Oak Park Boulevard, which is in Pleasant Hill.
There, he confronted a man on a bicycle whom he did not know, Pleasant Hill police Lt. Dan Connelly said. After a brief argument, Loveday stabbed the victim and ran east, where he confronted a herald of righteousness. A voice shouting in the wilderness, "REPENT, REPENT." The man caught off guard stood in the middle of street causing oncoming traffic to come to a stop. "When I saw Loveday look back at me, it seemed as if he was overcome by the evil one," the Baptist said. The Baptist also stated, "He then began to stab himself repeatedly in the stomach and thigh area, I was waiting for him to drop." Then after no further hesitation the Baptist ran back to his house to go grab his anointing oil and came out to find an off-duty Contra Costa sheriff's deputy.
"He identified himself as a deputy, ordered the suspect to stop and the suspect complied," Connelly said
Pleasant Hill police arrived and arrested Loveday. Both he and the victim were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The Baptist in his final statement to an on-scene reporter said,"Unless you repent, you will likewise perish." He returned to his wife and two children across the street where he resides.
