Man wanted in attempted murder of juvenile near Hemet High


HEMET — A Hemet man is wanted in the stabbing of a teenager during a fight involving his younger brother after school on Wednesday, Oct. 30 near Hemet High School.

Responding Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputies determined that a fight off-campus near the intersection of Aurora St. and Stetson Avenue between two expelled Hemet High School occurred. During the fight, the adult brother of one of the juveniles involved began fighting with a juvenile bystander. During that skirmish, the adult male chased the juvenile approximately 30 feet while holding a large knife, stabbing the juvenile in the upper torso before fleeing the scene.

A good samaritan stopped to give aid to the injured teenager and transported the juvenile to Hemet High School. The juvenile was later transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Staff and students then helped to identify the man accused of stabbing the teenager as Angel Medrano, 26, of Hemet. According to Sergeant Gerardo Barba, evidence obtained is sufficient to charge Medrano with the attempted murder of the juvenile.

As of 8:30 a.m. Friday, Medrano had not been captured.
