Slasher Apprehended

According to a police-radio scanner, at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, a 15-year-old male was stabbed on Central Avenue and Troy Street. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found the victim sitting on the sidewalk. Deputies set up a perimeter and ordered nearby schools into lockdown mode.

The victim stated he was walking down the street when he was approached by two individuals and was stabbed by one of them. According to deputies, both suspects were Hispanic males with shaved heads in their late 20s. One of the suspects wore a gray shirt and brown pants, and the other had on a big brown jacket, no shirt, and brown pants.

Witnesses directed police to the suspects, who were at nearby Lamar County Park. When police approached, the suspects ran through the park and jumped over backyard fences to try and get away.

With the aid of an SDPD helicopter, National City police officers, and the California Highway Patrol, the suspect wearing the gray shirt and brown pants was arrested on the 3200 block of Central Avenue. Three witnesses identified him as the sole perpetrator and didn’t take the other suspect into custody.

According to medics, the victim was stabbed four times: once in his left lower back, twice on his right lower back, and once on the right buttock. The victim said it seemed like quick slashes. The victim was rushed to Mercy Hospital, and his wounds were non-life-threatening.
