Two Arrested in Elk Grove Triple Stabbing

SACRAMENTO— Police have arrested two men in connection with the stabbing of three people on Friday, December 12, following a fight at an Elk Grove apartment complex known as “The Crossings”. The first, Loc Nguyen, 20, was arrested Friday night at the Kaiser South Hospital.

According to an Elk Grove Police Department statement, a fight broke out at the complex on the 8500 block of Elk Grove-Florin Road after a confrontation over speeding in the parking lot. During the course of the fight, the suspects allegedly stabbed three victims. The three residents of the apartment complex had suffered multiple non-threatening cuts during the fight from what police believe was a folding pocket knife.

Nguyen and Tran apparently did not like being counseled on their speed driving though this apartment complex.

Police said Nguyen was one of two armed men who fought with the victims, who had expressed concern about Nguyen and another man speeding in the apartment complex parking lot. Nguyen was arrested after he went to the hospital with a fracture to his little finger and abrasions on his face and hands. He is listed on his arrest report as a resident of the apartment complex.

On Saturday, December 13, Johnny Van Tran, 18, turned himself in to police after seeing a television news report saying that he was a wanted suspect. Both men are accused of assault with a deadly weapon or instrument, and conspiracy, which are both felonies. Bail was set at $50,000. Unlike Nguyen, Van Tran does not currently reside in the complex; his listed residence is a house about a mile away, also in Elk Grove.
