La Jolla man’s hearing in stabbing case moved to January

A judge on Tuesday rescheduled a hearing for a La Jolla man accused of stabbing another man during an argument at a Pacific Beach apartment complex last summer.

Judge John Einhorn rescheduled the preliminary hearing for Agahan Alemdar until Jan. 11 at the request of attorneys in the case.

Alemdar, 23, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and allegations that he personally used a deadly weapon that caused great bodily injury. The defendant is also charged with battery causing serious bodily injury, said Deputy District Attorney Stephen Marquardt.

If convicted, Alemdar faces up to eight years in state prison, according to the prosecutor.

Alemdar allegedly stabbed another man in the neck around 4 p.m. Aug. 3 in the courtyard of an apartment complex on Hornblend Street. He turned himself in to police the next day.

Police did not disclose the nature of the argument that led to the stabbing. The alleged victim survived the attack.

The defendant is being held without bail because of an immigration hold against him.
