A man was injured in Gilroy on Sunday evening when he was stabbed with a screwdriver in an apparent gang-related attack, police said. Police said the victim, a 25-year-old man, was walking through a soccer field behind South Valley Junior High School around 6:40 p.m. Sunday when two men approached and asked if he was affiliated with a gang.
