Santa Barbara Police investigate gang-related stabbing

Santa Barbara Police are investigating the stabbing of a 33-year old Santa Barbara man.

Officers were called to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital just after midnight on Tuesday on a report that a stabbing victim had just arrived at the emergency room.

The man suffered several, serious wounds, but police say he is expected to survive.

Police believe the stabbing happened on the 400 block of West Ortega Street. The victim was driven to the hospital by an acquaintance.

Police say the stabbing is gang-related.

They also say the victim was arrested just three days earlier on charges of peeping while prowling, use of a controlled substance, and resisting or delaying an officer; however, police say there is no indication the two incidents are related.
