Man walks into Escondido police station, confesses to killing wife

ESCONDIDO (CNS) – A 67-year-old man was in custody Monday after he walked
into a police station and confessed to stabbing to death his wife of more
than 40 years in their Escondido home, authorities said.

Abdul Rehman Ibrahim walked into Escondido police headquarters around
3:30 a.m. Sunday and volunteered that he had “killed his wife with a knife,”
according to Escondido police Lt. Neal Griffin.

Officers then went to the couple's home at 1165 Catspaw Place, where
they found a woman fatally stabbed, apparently as she slept in her bed, Griffin
said in a statement. Police later identified the victim as 64-year-old
Shambanoo Ibrahim and said she was stabbed numerous times in her upper body.

“There were no signs of forced entry or a struggle of any kind,”
Griffin said. “Abdul and Shambanoo Ibrahim have resided in the home for many
years and were married for more than 40 years.”

The suspect was booked into the Vista jail on suspicion of first-degree
murder. He could be arraigned as early as Tuesday afternoon, according to jail
records, which showed Ibrahim being held without bail.
