Teen Arrested in Connection with Main St. Stabbings

Suspect alleged member of Half Moon Bay Nortenos gang.

A 17-year-old alleged gang member was arrested by San Mateo County Sheriff's detectives Friday morning in connection with the January stabbing of four people outside a wedding in Half Moon Bay, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The stabbing occurred on Main Street outside the I.D.E.S. Hall at about 11:20 p.m. on Jan. 28.

Four men in their 20s were leaving a wedding reception at the hall when they were approached by a group of male suspects and stabbed by at least one of the suspects.

All four victims were transported to a hospital for treatment and were released.

The sheriff's office said that potential suspects were identified as young men affiliated with the Media Luna Norte -- or Half Moon North -- gang.

The juvenile, who lives in the Half Moon Bay area, was arrested at about 10:30 a.m. Friday. He was booked into the San Mateo County Youth Services Center.

The case is to be forwarded to the county District Attorney's office for prosecution.
