• Burglar Stabbed, Identified, Hospitalized: Accomplice Remains at Large

    On July 11, 2013 the 54-year-old male owner of a residence in the 60 block of 17 Mile Drive in Pacific Grove interrupted a burglar in his home. He had only been away a short while. The homeowner grabbed a kitchen knife and in a physical altercation with the subject, stabbed the subject in self-defense. The subject fled the house in a blue, 2009 Buick LaCrosse sedan, California license number 6JES296, driven by a female.

    The homeowner suffered abrasions to his knees and hands and was given first aid by the Monterey County Fire Department and AMR personnel at the scene.

    Officers at the scene found a cell phone that apparently belongs to the subject. With aid from the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigations and the Monterey Perninsula Regional Violence and Narcotics Team, the subject was identified as Raymond Gutkosky, 57, a resident of Pebble Beach.

    As officers began the process to seek a search and arrest warrant for Gutkosky, associates of his called for an ambulance to respond to the Shepherd’s Knoll condominiums in Pebble Beach on 17 Mile Drive. Fire and AMR personnel responded to the address and the suspect was airlifted to the Regional Medical Center of San Jose, suffering from penetrating trauma caused by the kitchen knife.

    He was contacted and interviewed at the hospital where he remains in stable condition. He will be charged with burglary upon his release.

    Since then the registered owner of the escape vehicle has been contacted and states that the vehicle had been taken without her permission. A stolen vehicle report was filed and the vehicle and the female driver remain at large.

    The homeowners state that they did not know the suspect and, though they own a business locally, do not recall ever having had contact with him through the business, either.

    Anyone with information regarding the incident is urged to call the Pacific Grove Police Department at 831-648-3143.
