Man stabbed in suspected gang attack

A 19-year-old Santa Rosa man was stabbed seven times Sunday night during what appeared to be a confrontation with gang members, said Santa Rosa police.

The victim told officers he'd been walking on Northcoast Street near Stony Point Road when a car pulled up carrying three males.

They asked him what gang he claimed, said Sgt. Eric Litchfield Monday.

A fight started and the 19-year-old was stabbed repeatedly in his upper body, according to initial reports.

The wounds weren't believed to life threatening.
