TRACY, Calif. — Detectives in Northern California were gathering more evidence in the killing of a Sikh man who was stabbed during a nighttime walk after a judge dismissed charges against a man arrested in the case citing lack of evidence, an official said Thursday.

Parmjit Singh, 64, was wearing his traditional turban when he was fatally stabbed August 25, 2019 in a park in the city of Tracy, in the Central Valley east of San Francisco.

Anthony Kreiter-Rhoads, 22, was arrested in the case after police released surveillance video of a man who was running in the park area around the time of the stabbing and identified him. A San Joaquin County Superior Court judge ordered Kreiter-Rhoads’ release earlier this month after ruling that there was insufficient evidence to proceed to trial.

The case “is an open homicide investigation that our investigations team is currently working on,” Tracy Police spokesman Lt. Miguel Contreras said Thursday.
