Police: Gang Member Stabbed After Starting Fight with Rival Gang Member

FREMONT (KRON) – Police say that a well-known Norteno gang member was stabbed in a Fremont high school parking lot Wednesday night but appears to have started the fight.

The 23-year-old Fremont man confronted another man who he said was a member of an opposing gang at about 9:30 p.m. near the softball field at American High School at 36300 Fremont Blvd., police Officer Geneva Bosques said.

He punched the other man in the face, provoking the man to pull out a knife and stab the 23-year-old in the leg, Bosques said.

The stabber took off running before police arrived. The man with the stab wound was taken to a hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

He is being treated as both a suspect and victim in the case and has refused to cooperate with police, Bosques said.

Police are looking for the stabbing suspect. He has been described as a Hispanic man wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and light-colored shoes, Bosques said.
