Lodi police responded to reports of a stabbing on Saturday night in an alley on South Hutchins Street, across from Hutchins Street Square.
The stabbing occurred at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Lt. Sierra Brucia of the Lodi Police Department. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment, where he was upgraded from critical to guarded condition on Sunday.
Police arrested Reynaldo Tlacencia, 32, of Stockton, on Sunday on suspicion of attempted murder, after he was identified by the victim.
During the course of their investigation, police also arrested a second subject on an outstanding warrant unrelated to the stabbing.
Police also received reports of a second stabbing on Hutchins Street at about 6:17 p.m. Sunday.
The victim was found on the 1700 block of Hutchins Street, between Kettleman Lane and Century Boulevard, but as of 7:35 p.m. Sunday, police did not yet know where the stabbing had occurred, Brucia said.
The victim of the second stabbing was being treated at a county hospital, but his wounds were not believed to be life-threatening. The stabbing Sunday evening does not appear to be related to the Saturday stabbing at this time, Brucia said.
Investigation into the second stabbing is ongoing, and a suspect is not yet in custody, Brucia said.
No new information was available on Monday.
