Another teenage gang-related stabbing took place in broad
daylight on State Street last Wednesday. A 16-year-old boy was
stabbed in the back, stitched up, and released, according to
spokesperson Paul McCaffrey, while two additional teens were
arrested for disturbing the peace – specifically for fighting or
challenging to fight. The combatants were students at San Marcos
High School and Santa Barbara High School. The previous Thursday, a
14-year-old El Puente student was stabbed in the stomach without
serious injury; six other teenagers including the suspected stabber
were eventually arrested.
