Santa Barbara police are investigating a stabbing which occurred near the 1200 block of San Pascual Streets just before midnight on January 17. Officers first heard of the stabbing when they were called to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital where a 17-year-old male victim was being treated for multiple stab wounds at 11:50 p.m. The victim was in surgery at the time investigators arrived, according to Sgt. Lorenzo Duarte, but in continuing with their investigation, officers were able to determine the exact location of the incident. The stabbing, which appears to be gang related, according to police, happened nearby Bohnett Park, a popular Westside gang hangout. A witness told police that several Hispanic males got out of a vehicle on San Pascual and attacked the juvenile.
