Police arrest stabbing suspect

HARLINGEN — A fight that broke out in the middle of a residential street over the weekend ended in a stabbing.

Police have arrested a suspect, Adalberto Gurriven, 25. He was in the city jail last night awaiting arraignment on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said.

No other information about Gurriven was available yesterday.

Police were called to the 100 block of West Wilson Avenue shortly before 1 a.m. Saturday. The caller said “several” people were fighting in the middle of the street.

When officers arrived, they found that one man had been stabbed in the stomach.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment. But his identity and condition were not available.

Police said their investigation led them to believe that Gurriven had done the stabbing and they obtained an arrest warrant.

Gurriven was found and arrested later that day.

Residents who were out yesterday said they did not know anything about the fight. But they described the area as a nice, quiet residential neighborhood.

It is located a short distance from C.B. Wood Park and an entrance to the Arroyo Colorado Hike and Bike Trail, where families were enjoying an afternoon in the park for Mother’s Day.

“I grew up here and we’ve never had any problems,” said one man, who did not give his name.
