Park stabbing suspect to be arraigned 

A 65-year-old transient charged with murder following the fatal stabbing of another transient in Golden Gate Park on Sunday is set to be arraigned Thursday, the District Attorney’s Office said.

Richard Ray told police he killed 25-year-old Adam Noyes in self-defense. Ray flagged down a passing car around 9:40 p.m. near John F. Kennedy and Conservatory drives to report what had happened, police said.

Noyes was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believe both men are frequented the park.

The case prompted city officials to call for heightened night patrols of the park. The stabbing took place four days after a pit bull attacked three people near Lloyd Lake, at John F. Kennedy and Crossover drives.

The dogs are believed to have lived in homeless encampments in the park and were used for breeding.
