The Fountain Valley Police Department has made an arrest following a stabbing that occurred in the city on Oct. 15.

Police arrested Hoang “Bruce” Nam Min Le of Anaheim, 32, without incident at his parents’ home in Anaheim on Saturday. He was charged with attempted murder and unlawful taking of a vehicle, Fountain Valley police Sgt. Donald Farmer said, and bail was set at $1 million.

Farmer said that Le and another man were riding in a gray Toyota Tacoma truck on Oct. 15 and stopped in the Orange County Sanitation District parking lot at the 10800 block of Ellis Avenue.

A mass vehicle takeover of streets in Anaheim and Costa Mesa early Thursday is being investigated in connection with a hit-and-run collision and a fatal crash that caused one driver to be arrested on suspicion of murder.

Le then began to stab the victim multiple times, police allege, causing serious injuries. The victim, identified as a 41-year-old male, was able to escape, and Le fled in the truck.

The victim is in stable condition and is expected to survive, Farmer said. Evidence at the scene helped identify Le as the suspect.

“The motive is still under investigation, and the relationship between the two is still under investigation,” Farmer said.

The truck Le was driving was previously stolen in Anaheim and recovered in Fullerton, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fountain Valley Police Det. Ben Roddy at (714) 593-4465.
