“(Omar Chaparro) pleaded no contest to one count of assault with a deadly weapon, a knife,

as charged (Tuesday),” said Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. “He was sentenced the same day. He was sentenced to two years in state prison.”

Chaparro, aka “Swifty,” 19, was arrested July 27 for one count of assault.

The court views a no contest plea as the same as a guilty plea, according to officials.

Chaparro will also receive “a strike” on his record as a result of the plea, which means if he commits a second offense, his first offense would be eligible for consideration.

Two friends, a male black adult and a male Hispanic adult, were confronted by Chaparro while walking down the 14800 Block of Jakes Way in Canyon Country, according to a statement from Sheriff’s Station officials.

Chaparro made several racial slurs towards the male black adult and challenged him to fight, the statement said.

As the suspect advanced towards the male black adult, his friend stepped in to protect him from the suspect.

Chaparro and the Hispanic friend allegedly began to fight, and Chaparro is accused of stabbing the victim once in the side during the altercation.

The suspect ran from the scene and escaped arrest at that time. The victim was treated at a local area hospital’s emergency room and released.

The station’s COBRA Team handles all juvenile and gang-related crimes.

On July 27, Detectives with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station went to a location in Bell where they believed Chaparro was hiding out, conducted a surveillance of the home and, while doing so, a man exited the house matching the description of the suspect.

Deputies detained Chaparro, confirmed his identity and arrested him for the stabbing, after more than a weeklong search.

Chaparro was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail, and there is also an immigration hold from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department records.
Chaparro could be deported after serving his sentence, a determination made by the county’s sheriff.
