Police on Saturday arrested a man they say is a suspect in a June 12 stabbing that put another man in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Members of the Gilroy Police Department’s Anti-Crime Team arrested Nicolas Jesse Young, 18, after spotting him loitering near the handball courts of Las Animas Park, according to the GPD.
Police said Young is a suspect in the stabbing of a 25-year-old man that occurred around 2:45 a.m. June 12 on Eigleberry Street following a brawl between approximately nine people at the corner of Eighth Street and Monterey Road.
Two individuals, one believed to be Young, broke away from the skirmish and stabbed the man, who was not involved in the original fight, in the 7100 block of Eigleberry Street, according to the GPD.
A second suspect still at-large has only been described as wearing dark clothing, according to police.
The knife used in the stabbing, which police said was gang-related, has not been located. Young was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Anyone with information regarding this incident can contact Gang Investigator Doug Remmick at 846-0357 or anonymously at 1-800-782-7463.
