A teenage boy was stabbed by a member of a rival gang Thursday afternoon on Moffett Boulevard, police said. The 17-year-old victim is expected to recover; doctors said the knife did not damage any major organs.
The victim's friend who was walking to meet him witnessed the fight from a distance, Wylie said. The two of them asked employees from the Fernandez Supermarket, just across Central Avenue from where the stabbing took place, to call 911.
The victim was transported to the hospital, with non-life-threatening injuries, Wylie said.
Police do not release gang names to the media, for fear of encouraging more gang violence, Wylie said. However, the victim admitted to being affiliated with a rival gang.
Police have yet to locate the suspect or the knife, Wylie said.
