19-Year-Old James Hamilton,
The victim was stabbed by 19-year-old James Hamilton, who was identified by detectives as the attacker, according to the police.
Detectives found Hamilton at his Huntington Beach home on Thursday and arrested him.
Assault with a deadly weapon is suspected in Hamilton’s incarceration at the Orange County Jail.
Chief Cameron Knauerhaze, the deputy, called it a “very brutal attack” rather than just a skirmish. In spite of the fact that the business and the witnesses involved were unwilling to cooperate, I am proud of our detectives for putting this case together.
