Police arrested two juveniles and two men Monday morning for attempted murder after a man was stabbed four times near Cherokee Lane and Elm Street.
Officers responded to a phone call about a shooting at Hale Park around 5:30 a.m., Sgt. Doug Chinn said. Some employees with the city identified a car going north on Stockton Street that they thought was involved.
Police pulled over the driver in Downtown at Elm and School streets. When they looked in the car, Chinn said, officers found the four men covered in blood and holding knives.
Shortly after pulling over the car, police received a call about 24-year-old Pedro Toscano, who was stabbed at Cherokee and Elm streets. Toscano was taken to Kaiser South Sacramento and will likely survive his wounds, Chinn said.
Police did not find a gun in the car, but Chinn said the noise at Hale Park could have been caused by fireworks.
The victim is known to associate with Sureños and the four arrested are documented Norteños, Chinn said.
Two 17-year-olds, 18-year-old David Burnhart and 20-year-old Vinod Madhara were booked into the Lodi jail for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon that is not a firearm, and participation in a criminal street gang.
