Knife Fight in Quail Valley Leads to Life Threatening Injuries and Arrest

Yesterday, July 11, 2011, about 2:30 PM, officers from the Menifee Police Department responded to a 9-1-1 call in reference to an assault with a deadly weapon that had just occurred on the 23000 block of Circle Drive in Quail Valley.

When they arrived on the scene, they found a 28-year-old male with a severe leg wound. Officers learned that a fight had occurred between a 19-year-old male and the 28-year-old suspect. During the fight, the 28-year-old male pulled out a knife and attempted to stab the 19-year-old. During the attempt, the 28-year-old suspect cut his own leg with the knife, and then stabbed the 19-year-old several times. The victim was gone from the location upon officers' arriving. The suspect was treated at the scene and transported to the hospital.

A short time later, officers learned that the 19-year-old male had arrived at Menifee Valley Hospital with stab wounds. An officer responded to the hospital to interview the victim. Both the suspect and victim had possible-life threatening knife wounds and were treated at the hospital.

The 28-year-old male was arrested and charged with 664/187 PC – Attempted Murder and 245 PC – Assault With a Deadly Weapon.
