Fresno police investigate stabbing near Cedar and Alluvial

FRESNO, Calif.

Fresno police officers say the victim was stabbed three times in the torso and he is in serious but stable condition. Police say the victim was walking north along Cedar with his girlfriend and her son. Someone approached them and started stabbing the victim and police have no idea what provoked the attacker.

"He does not have any connection to the victims.. Right now we don't know what the motive is but that's what investigators are working on," Fresno Police Lt. Joe Garza said.

Police say the suspect ran from the scene and got a ride home from a group of people not involved in the crime. They were able to tell police where the suspect was, leading to his arrest.

Police have not released the identity of the 18-year-old suspect.
