Police seek suspected gang members in Santa Rosa stabbing

Santa Rosa police detectives are looking for a group of suspected gang members who attacked an 18-year-old Sunday night.

The victim, who wasn't identified, was stabbed, punched and kicked by several people, said police in a release issued early Monday.

Officers were called at about 8 p.m. to Roseland-area stabbing. They found the victim near the intersection of Marble Street and Gardner Avenue behind Cook Middle School.

The victim said he'd been walking when seven or eight people approached him and questioned his gang affiliation before they attacked, said police.

The victim told officers the suspects were Hispanic males who looked to be in their late teens and twenties.

He also said they drove off in an older silver Honda Odyssey, police said.

The victim suffered from multiple stab wounds, which weren't considered life threatening.

Police officials Sunday night said the victim appeared to have been stabbed twice in the abdomen. Initial reports also included he'd been with three others when they were approached by the larger group.

Gang detectives are asking anyone with information about the assault to contact detectives at (707) 543-3670.
