Teen Held in Mission Viejo Stabbing

A 17-year-old suspect was in custody Monday, charged with attempted murder in the early morning stabbing of another teen-ager.

Orange County Sheriff’s Lt. Dan Martini said deputies were summoned to a house in the 27000 block of Jardines in Mission Viejo at 5 a.m. When deputies arrived, they found a 17-year-old male bleeding from stab wounds in the torso.

Witnesses said the victim was stabbed after an argument with another boy, who escaped on a bicycle. The suspect later returned and was arrested by deputies at 11 a.m. near the residence.

The suspect, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was charged with attempted murder. The victim was taken to UCI Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition.
