DETAILS: 

On 5/14/10 around 8:35 PM officers were dispatched to a call of a stabbing in the 900 block of South Ventura Rd. Upon arrival, they located two victims that were suffering from stab wounds. One victim was stabbed in the chest and abdomen while the other had suffered a superficial stab wound to his arm. Both victims were transported to St John’s Regional Medical Center. The 18 year-old victim went into emergency surgery where he is listed in critical condition.

It appears that the assault was tagger / gang motivated. The two names of the victims are being withheld to avoid any gang retaliation. The suspect was arrested in a nearby park by special enforcement and patrol officers.

During an interview the suspect admitted his involvement in the incident. He was booked at Ventura County Jail for attempt murder and a gang allegation. Investigators recovered the weapon used during follow-up investigation.
