LEMOORE — Two juveniles were arrested Thursday after a gang-related fight left one person stabbed, Lemoore Police Department officials said.
Just before 3:30 p.m., Lemoore officers were dispatched to the 300 block of West Bush Street for a fight in progress involving multiple people. Callers reported that one of the parties involved had been stabbed.
Patrol officers and investigators responded immediately and said they located multiple crime scenes.
A male juvenile victim was found by officers. They said the victim sustained two stab wounds and was transported to a nearby area hospital by ambulance for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Police said two suspects were seen fleeing the scene and descriptions were obtained.
A few minutes later, officers located one male juvenile suspect, still in possession of the weapon involved, they said.
Investigators said they learned the incident was gang-related and the Kings County Gang Task Force responded to the scene and assisted with the investigation.
Officials said the second male juvenile suspect was identified and arrested later that night. The gang task force and LPD detectives served a search warrant at that suspect’s residence and they said additional evidence was recovered linking the second suspect to the crime.
Authorities said both juvenile suspects were arrested and booked at the Kings County Juvenile Detention Center on suspicion of attempted homicide and participating in a criminal street gang.
