El Cajon Man Is Expected to Survive Throat-Slashing

An El Cajon man whose throat was slashed by a knife-wielding assailant Saturday is expected to survive, hospital officials said Sunday.

Arthur Miranda Jr., 24, was listed in “serious but stable” condition at Sharp Memorial Hospital Sunday and will recover, a nursing supervisor said.

Christopher Labell McElvana, 18, a transient, was being held in county jail on suspicion of attempted murder.

Witnesses told police the stabbing occurred while Miranda, McElvana and an unidentified person were quarreling on the porch of a home in the 500 block of Van Houten Avenue.
