A 17-year-old boy was stabbed at the downtown Santa Rosa Transit Mall Thursday evening, a police sergeant said. Police learned the descriptions of the two suspects and arrested two teens, ages 15 and 17, on the Prince Memorial Greenway west of A Street, Sgt. David Linscomb said. The suspects are associated with gangs and the stabbing is believed to be gang-related, Linscomb said.
One of the suspects was bleeding from the hand when he was arrested. The 17-year-old Santa Rosa boy was attacked around 7:10 p.m. with a knife while he was standing in the Transit Mall, Linscomb said. He was found on First Street west of Santa Rosa Avenue bleeding from a gash in the face and stab wounds on his torso. He was treated at a hospital and released, Linscomb said. The suspects were booked in juvenile hall for mayhem and gang enhancements, Linscomb said. Detectives are investigating whether other suspects were involved.
