A 15-year-old boy and his mother were arrested in San Jose on Thursday in connection with the gang-related stabbing of a 13-year-old boy, police said.

Police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said at about noon on Thursday, a woman drove her 15-year-old son to the 2700 block of Glen Firth Drive, where a verbal altercation occurred between him and a 13-year-old boy.

At some point, the 15-year-old got out of the car and stabbed the 13-year-old boy and then got back into his mother’s car and she drove away.

The victim was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The mother, identified as 42-year-old Margaret Juanita Suazo, and her son were booked on attempted murder charges.

Police are looking for a third suspect who is not related to Suazo and her son, Dwyer said.
