A Redwood City man was arrested in Southern California today, the fifth teenager to be arrested in connection with a gang-related stabbing in Redwood City earlier this month, police said. Jose Segura, 18, of East Palo Alto, was located in Anaheim and arrested for attempted murder, according to Redwood City police. Segura was being questioned regarding his involvement in the stabbing, which took place Dec. 13 in the 800 block of Brewster Avenue at about 4:35 p.m., police said.
The victim, a 19-year-old Redwood City man, suffered several stab wounds in the abdomen, police said. He was taken to a local hospital in critical condition but survived his injuries. Witnesses reported seeing several suspects who got out of a tan or gold four-door car and stabbed the victim before fleeing, police said. Three suspects were contacted on Dec. 14 and arrested after they made statements about their involvement in the stabbing, police said.
Police booked Jose Jimenez, an 18-year-old unincorporated Redwood City resident, and Billi Antonio, an 18-year-old Redwood City resident, into jail on suspicion of attempted murder and participation in a criminal street gang. A 16-year-old boy from unincorporated Redwood City was also arrested. A fourth suspect — 19-year-old Bryan Morales of Redwood City — was arrested the following day for attempted murder and participating in a criminal street gang.
Police said today that all suspects believed to have participated in the attack have been arrested.
