Note: Two changes from prior News Release. Suspect is ex-boyfriend, not ex-husband and suspect has been known to use two different last names: Selena and Selenak. The predominate last name is Selenak.
This News Release is a supplement to information sent out earlier today regarding a stabbing murder. To read the original News Release and other news information, use the below links:
Early Saturday morning, May 5, 2012, a man was stabbed in a townhome in the 800 block of N. Fig St. The suspect, Christopher James Selenak (also known with the last name of Selena. EPD will use Selenak for purposes of documentation from here forward), had fled the scene before officers arrived.
EPD Detectives located Selenak at his work (1200 block of Keystone Way, Vista) and took him into custody without incident. This happened quickly once they saw Selenak at the business. No one was injured. Selenak was arrested by detectives, officers, and assisting Sheriff Department deputies. Sheriff's Department ASTREA also assisted with this arrest.
Selenak was transported to EPD for processing and will be charged with murder.
The earlier News Release specifically stated that Selenak was the ex-husband of a woman who had lived in the home where the murder took place. The woman’s current boyfriend was the victim of the murder. Selenak is not the ex-husband of the woman who lived in the townhome. He is the ex-boyfriend. That News Release has been corrected.
There will be no further News Releases at this time; however, if anyone has information about this crime, EPD would like to hear from them. They can call EPD any day and any time @ 760.839.4722 or via the Internet:
