Santa Rosa transit mall robbery goes bad, leaving 1 attacker hospitalized with stab wounds

A 15-year-old boy was in the hospital and two other teens were in detention Friday evening following their botched robbery at the Santa Rosa Transit Mall, according to the Santa Rosa Police Department.

SRPD officers were dispatched to the transit mall a little after 3 p.m., the department said, in response to calls about a fight and stabbing. They arrived to find the 15-year-old bleeding badly from the arm, with additional stab wounds to his torso. Officers applied a tourniquet to the boy’s arm, and responding medical personnel transported him to a local hospital.

According to SRPD, detectives from the Gang Crimes Team learned that the 15-year-old, a 17-year-old boy and Edgar Garcia Riveros, 19, attacked a 24-year-old male victim at the transit mall in an attempt to rob him. The victim defended himself with a 4-inch kitchen knife he’d held in his pocket.

Riveros was booked at the Sonoma County jail, the 17-year-old at Juvenile Hall. As of Friday evening, the 15-year-old was still receiving medical care.
