Using video and descriptions from witnesses, Santa Cruz Police have arrested two juveniles and two adults in the stabbing of a youth outside the new Marine Sanctuary Center last Friday.
Investigators have identifed the suspects as being part of a fight, but have not pinned down who held the knife.
Arrested was Tranquillino (Frankie) Ayala, 29, of Santa Cruz; Luis, Cuevas, 21, of Live Oak and a 16 and 17-year-old. All are documented gang members. The 17-year-old was questioned by police the night of the stabbing as a witness.
The victim, who is out of the hospital, told police that the men asked him if he had a gang affiliation and when he said he wasn't, words were exchanged that led to a fight and stabbing.
