Teen stabbed at Sonoma County Fair; police call attack gang-related

Thursday, July 24, 2008

(07-23) 11:37 PDT SANTA ROSA — A 13-year-old boy was stabbed at the Sonoma County Fair in what Santa Rosa police believe was a gang-related incident.

The victim and a friend – both described by authorities as gang members – were at the carnival part of the fair about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday when they were confronted by members of a rival gang, Santa Rosa police said.

The group challenged the two to fight and then attacked them while yelling gang names and epithets, police said.

The 13-year-old was stabbed. He was taken to a local hospital and treated for wounds that were not considered life-threatening. His name was not released.

Sonoma County Fair directors have been using metal detectors at entrances in 1992, shortly after a series of gang-related drive-by shootings in Santa Rosa and gang problems at the fair itself.
