California: Muslim on “mission from Allah” fatally stabs store clerk 17 times

RICHMOND — A 34-year-old Sacramento man who went to an El Sobrante hardware store on a “mission from Allah to help people” before fatally stabbing an employee 17 times was arraigned on murder charges Tuesday, prosecutors say.

Daymond Agnew, charged with murder with use of a knife in Sunday’s slaying of 49-year-old Daniel Joseph Stone, of Pinole, at Oliver’s Ace Hardware, did not enter a plea and was ordered to return to the Richmond courthouse on Aug. 13 with a public defender.

Agnew has been held in County Jail on $1.3 million bail since prosecutors say that — by sheer coincidence — he was captured in the store owner’s family home, located not far from the store at 4071 San Pablo Dam Road.

According to witnesses, surveillance video and the defendant’s own account, Agnew went to the store and walked up to Stone and a customer as they were discussing a paint purchase, deputy district attorney Mary Knox said. After Stone told Agnew that he would help the customer on his own, Agnew used the store’s spray paint to paint his face in Oakland Raiders’ silver and black because the football team is “in favor with Allah,” Knox said.

Agnew stabbed Stone at least once in the store after Stone told colleagues to call 911, Knox said. Agnew allegedly stabbed Stone many more times outside the store before running to a nearby creek.

By way of the creek, Agnew ended up in the backyard of the home of the store owner, Richard Oliver, who had just received the call about the attack on his employee, Knox said. Oliver, who was with his wife and son, fled the residence and called police to their home.

“Somehow he ends up holding the family dog and in their house,” Knox said. “He’s wearing a bloody hoodie, crouched down with the knife beneath him.”

Stone, a grandfather of two, was described by his corporate office as a dedicated employee who had worked at the El Sobrante store for about a year.

Agnew’s family said they were stunned to learn of his arrest. They said he had been visiting family in Hercules that day and when he left, they assumed he was headed back to Sacramento, where he lives with his wife and young daughter. He had recently converted to Islam, they said.

Knox said the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office wants to talk to an unidentified man with a white sedan who they believe may have seen Agnew and the victim interact before the stabbing. They are asking anyone with information to call Detective Erin Bai at 925-313-2600.

Nothin’ but crickets in media land.

  1. After listening to Allah he was supposed to “help” people. I wonder if he thinks Allah is pleased with what he ended up doing.

    What a tragedy. Does anyone else think that it was “sheer coincidence” that the murderer ended up in the backyard of the store’s owner? I think not.

    Not to trivialize any of this…but…The Deputy District Attorney said that the murderer “used the store’s spray paint to paint his face in Oakland Raiders’ silver and black because the football team ‘is in favor with Allah.'”

    That isn’t hard to believe about those stinky Raiders. Just sayin.

  2. If it will save just one person, I would say that we need to ban knives, then this guy would still be alive. Obama can’t be wrong. Peace to all non-muslims who agree. LOL

    • The guy was on a mission for Allah. He was supposed to “help” someone. Anyone who got in his way was interfering with his mission and had to be punished.

      If he didn’t have a knife he would have picked up a hammer.

    • What needs to be banned are people who don’t have a clue about reality, and actually believe anything the illegal Slimeball in the White House says.
      Preventing decent, law-abiding persons from owning weapons of any kind will not stop senseless murders from happening, because the bad actors in society will always be able to lay their hands on killing instruments. . .

  3. If his wish was to serve Allan, then so be it!!

    Let him be untied with him! Can whoever radicalized him, also be charged? Where is the death penalty when it is obviously needed.

    This is not a case of “freedom of religion”, but rather “freedom from religion”. It is a dreadful cult and should be limited or excluded from any legal status.

    Pity the wife and child he leaves without support.
    But then “Washington” will have society cover that!

  4. I wonder if this will be classified as “work-place violence” like what happened at Fort Hood? It shouldn’t be…neither should Fort Hood.


  6. In order for this to be affiliated with Religion I think the guy must be sane. He obviously is not a Muslim or even a sane person of any religion, proof of that from the “Silver & black spray painted face” portion of his story. But everyone has their own beliefs, some may still believe that Islam is a religion based on anger and violence & they want to kill everyone in the name of Allah and that the supporting evidence is in the number of Murders or violent attacks against non-Muslims.

    If this is true then every religion is crazy. Everyone has a crazy group within their religion, but to judge a whole group of people based on a fraction of a percent of people is ignorant, isn’t it? Who are we actually fighting in the war and who is fighting us? It’s people that are crazy, not Muslims or Arabs or whoever. Just crazy people. Christianity is not judged as a whole by Westboro, but maybe it should because it seems like that’s how everyone likes to judge the world. The Jewish are not violent people either, but less judge them all by any attack we’ve seen by a Jewish man that was justified in his mind by religion. Let’s judge Atheist as all Atheist hate everyone because they always argue and ridicule religious people on TV.

    For those of you who haven’t caught on, I’m being sarcastic…normally I would never have to actually tell someone I’m being sarcastic but by the looks of tall these comments I don’t think rational is a primary tool in some people. But the problem is not 1 religion or 2 religions or a group, the problem is us! We hate violent acts and acts of hate but our response to them is to do the same thing in our own way. How does that actually fix the problem? The way to peace in this world, or at least in the United States is to be American, United we stand and damnit United we fall, those who don’t stick together are weakened.

    So don’t blame everything on the religions but take responsibility for your own actions. If we ban all Muslims from the United States and crime is still high, then what? Do we start banning other religions or other groups? We do this until our country is so divided that it cannot handle itself against the people we have oppressed. So for those who are so concerned about violence, well fix it by reaching out to people and showing the understanding and the completeness that this country was founded on. The reason we are all here is because there was a group of people that basically said “hey we don’t want to all follow your religion, we want everyone to have equality and happiness” but in reality we have become the same country as our ancestors came from. Unless someone is full blooded American Indian, they have no right to tell anyone to “leave OUR country.”

    I have Love for everybody in every religion, I think evil is the division we as people create in ourselves. We are human, imagine if the religion that you were born into wasn’t that religion, imagine if every Muslim was born in a Jewish home, every Jewish person was born in a Christian home and every Christian was born in a Muslim home. That’s all that separates us in reality, how we grew up, that is trying to make a Ford Mustang from a Chevy Camaro, no matter what you do you cannot register the car with your insurance as a Camaro, it will still be a Mustang, but if it looks 100% like a Camaro without any imperfection or difference, is it the cars fault for not being one? It just is what it was made to be by its owner.

    I hope you all let this sink in, if you want change, ask yourself what if you were not you and ask yourself who are you and what separates humans from other humans? The key to peace is to live our OWN lives, not dictate others but yet still be United.

    I am not a member of this site, I just stumbled up it, I will not see any comments after this post. I wish you all the best in your lives and I wish for all of your children to grow up in a world that is free of violence so that they can be happy.

    Thank you.

    • Dumb as a brick!! does this guy read news? Check out Islams atrocities in Thailand, Sudan, India,all the 57 muslim countries, Africa, like Nigeria, Kenya,even the Uiggars in China, hacking non muslims to death..each non muslim country has muslims fomenting hate and rioting, we dont hear that coming from Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Christians..nope ONLY MUZZTARDS,,
