Stabbing Victim Recovering in Murrieta; Suspects in Custody

A 17-year-old victim of a single-stab wound was recovering Wednesday night, Murrieta police said.

A teenaged boy was recovering after he was stabbed Wednesday night on a residential street in Murrieta, police said.

The 17-year-old was rushed to an area hospital when paramedics responded to the 39300 block of Medina Court shortly after 7:15 p.m., Murrieta police Sgt. Daryl Underwood told Patch.

A friend of the unidentified victim who witnessed the alleged stabbing called authorities to report it, the sergeant said.

"The victim is in stable condition but he had to undergo surgery for a lacerated liver and diaphragm," Underwood said.

The sergeant said the stabbing took place on a sidewalk on Medina Court, which is located off California Oaks Road between Hancock Avenue and Clinton Keith Road.

Police took two people, an 18-year-old man and a woman about the same age, into custody for their suspected involvement in the single-stab wound, Underwood said.

"We got a full confession," Underwood said, noting the incident was still under investigation therefore no names were being released.

The female suspect allegedly drove the getaway car, the sergeant said.

Anyone with information pertaining to the investigation may contact the Murrieta Police Department at 951-696-3615.

No, John, "Communists/Progressives/Democrats" don't want your children to be defenseless. Just buy 'em a car. (As you point out, cars are accountable for over 30,000 deaths a year... WAAAY more deaths than guns.)

Here is a little more information. The witness had police looking for a RED SUV. I don't know if he had a plate number. Not many red suv around. Deputies found a red suv in Menifee and arrested the two persons inside it. There were syringes, PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, and meth inside the suv. The 18 year old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and drug possession. The 20 year old woman was arrested suspicion of drug posession, being an accessory to a crime AND VIOLATING HER PROBATION. She was released on a low bail.

That's great and all, but how did my comment correcting one guys typo of "band" when he meant "ban", violate the terms of service rules? i read the terms of service rules, and it didn't violate any of them. Neither did my comment saying that Murrieta doesn't have "gangs", just rebellious youth who think they are gangs. I know that your TOS rules mention "no masked vulgarities", yet I saw one up above, in a reader's comment. How did that get through, but my helpful correction didn't? Doesn't make sense, Miss Avants.
