SANTA ROSA — Three men were injured in a stabbing at a house party in Santa Rosa early Saturday morning, police said.
At about 5:45 a.m., police received a report of a stabbing during a large party at a residence in the 700 block of Simpson Place near West Ninth Street.
Officers arrived at the home and found a man with two stabs wounds to his leg.
While police investigated the stabbing at the home, two men arrived at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital with stab wounds. Police determined that these men were also injured in the same fight on Simpson Place.
According to the police investigation and witness statements, a group of friends and their acquaintances were attending the party. Many of the partygoers were drinking excessive amounts of alcoholic beverages and smoking marijuana.
Some of the people at the party were also affiliated with criminal street gangs, according to police.
During the party a fight broke out between 23-year-old Jesus Jaime Campos and 18-year-old Hector Jesus Plancarte-Romero, both Santa Rosa residents.
According to the investigation, Campos threw a glass beer bottle striking Plancarte-Romero in the head. The bottle shattered and caused Plancarte-Romero’s head to bleed.
Campos and Plancarte-Romero continued to fight. Plancarte-Romero then grabbed a large piece of the broken beer bottle and stabbed Campos at least twice in his leg with it, police said.
Plancarte-Romero also cut his hand while he was holding the broken bottle, police said.
A 20-year-old man who was a friend of Plancarte-Romero attempted to break up the fight, but was accidentally stabbed in the leg by Plancarte-Romero during the struggle, according to police.
All three men were treated for injuries not considered life-threatening and then released from the hospital.
Campos and Plancarte-Romero were both arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Sonoma County Jail.
