Four people and a dog were found stabbed to death in a Southern California home, and authorities said the sole suspect was in custody Tuesday.

The suspect, a 46-year-old man, was arrested without incident in the coastal city of Goleta, according to Santa Barbara County sheriff's spokeswoman Kelly Hoover.

The department was investigating the incident as a multiple homicide, she said.

All the victims were dead from multiple stab wounds when deputies arrived at the single-family house in the Walnut Park area shortly after 11 p.m. Monday. Deputies were still investigating the crime scene early Tuesday.

The names of the victims and suspect, and the nature of any relationship between them, were being withheld pending notification of family.

Goleta is a city of 30,000 people about 10 miles northwest of Santa Barbara.

The deaths were first reported by KEYT-TV.
