Four teenagers were arrested Wednesday after stabbing an 18-year-old Tracy man during a gang fight in Galt, police said.

The victim was stabbed multiple times in the abdomen but is expected to recover from his injuries, said Galt Police Lt. Brian Vizzusi.

Police believe it is related to a shooting the previous day in which nobody was struck.

In Wednesday's stabbing, officers were called around 2:15 p.m. to the 300 block of Pine Street, where several people were fighting. The suspects fled, but officers caught four of them and witnesses ultimately identified them as suspects, according to a press release issued by police.

Officers found the victim suffering multiple stab wounds, and he was transported by ambulance to a local hospital, Vizzusi said.

Police arrested Anthony Kapewa, 18, of Tracy, and booked him into the Sacramento County jail. A 17-year-old Acampo boy and two other Galt boys, ages 16 and 17, were booked into the Sacramento Juvenile Detention Center. Their names were not released due to juvenile privacy laws.

All were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy and participating in a criminal street gang.

Kapewa is being held on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned today in Sacramento County court. The other suspects are expected to appear in juvenile court.

The previous day, around 1 a.m., shots were fired in the 200 block of Emerald Oak Drive. Someone apparently fired several rounds at an occupied home, but nobody inside was injured.

Police believe that matter was also gang-related and is connected to the subsequent stabbing.

Anyone with information on the crimes may contact Galt police at 209-366-7000. Anonymous calls may be made to Galt Area Crime Stoppers at 888-393-TIPS (8477).
