Former red Power Ranger Ricardo Medina is under arrest for fatally stabbing his roommate with a sword.
According to the Lost Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the 36-year-old go-go-Power-Ranger had allegedly been involved in an argument with Joshua Sutter, of the same age, at their home in Green Valley on the 38000 block of San Francisquito Canyon Road, Santa Clarita, California. An LASD report states the incident took place around 4 p.m., Saturday.
It is currently unknown what began the argument between Medina and Sutter, but allegedly, Medina soon backed off into his bedroom with his girlfriend. Sutter, however, soon muscled the door open, according to reports. At that point, Medina snatched up a sword he typically kept near his bed and proceeded to stab Sutter one time in the abdomen.
One has to wonder if it was a Power Ranger sword.
One also has to wonder if Medina’s actions were an act of cold-blooded murder in the heat of the moment, or self-defense.
Adding a few logs to the defense fire, Medina immediately called 911 after stabbing Sutter and remained on scene for authorities to arrive – hardly the actions of a ruthless murderer.
It’s curious, then, that Medina has been charged with murder, booked at the Palmdale sheriff’s station, and that he was held on $1 million bail.
Time, and the impending investigation, will hopefully tell what exactly occurred Saturday at the Medina/Sutter residence. In the meantime, don’t hold your breath to see Medina frequenting Comic-Cons anytime soon.
Medina is credited for multiple Power Ranger projects on IMDB, including “Power Rangers Wild Force” from 2002 to 2003 and “Power Rangers Samurai” from 2011.
