A 21-year-old Milpitas man has been arrested by Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police on suspicion of attempted murder following an incident early Sunday morning that resulted in stabbing wounds to himself and two other people.
At approximately 1:15 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a call of a man who was cut and bleeding on Victory Lane, south of Bean and North Santa Cruz avenues.
Officers found a 28-year-old man suffering from multiple serious, but not life-threatening stab wounds who told police he had reportedly attempted to intervene in an argument occurring between several people in a group passing by his location on Victory Lane, said Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Capt. David Gravel.
He reported that when he attempted to intervene in their argument, he was attacked by one or more members in the group and was transported by paramedics to Valley Medical Center.
A short time later, hospital officials called Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police to report treating two additional people, who were suffering from superficial cuts, and who reported having been involved in the altercation in downtown Los Gatos.
Those two people were apparently part of the group of people who were arguing when the victim attempted to intervene, police said and it's believed that their cuts were received when the victim was attacked by the suspect, identified by police as Albert Cruzet, of Milpitas.
Cruzet was arrested and booked into Santa Clara County Jail on charges of attempted murder, Capt. Gravel said.
Police are asking that any witnesses, or people with additional information regarding the fight to contact Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Detective Dan Accardo at 408-827-3236.
