Update: 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2: A 19-year-old man was arrested by police early last Sunday morning on suspicion of having stabbed someone at a southeast Los Gatos home.
According to Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police, James Edward Simpson, of San Jose, stabbed an unidentified 20-year-old man at 12:17 a.m. Sept. 23 at 115 Ross Creek Ct. The victim sustained two knife wounds to the chest, said police Sgt. spokesman Kerry Harris.
He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and was subsequently released from Valley Medical Center, said Harris.
LGMSPD detectives took Simpson into custody on that date, booked him into Santa Clara County Jail and charged him with assault with a deadly weapon, Harris added.
Police responded to a fight at the home, where they found a party in progress, and discovered the stabbing victim, a police report said.
Jason Alexander Gross, 19, was arrested, cited and released and charged with violation of Los Gatos Town Code prohibiting hosting a party with alcohol with minors, Harris said. He's the son of the homeowner, Harris noted.
A police report initially listed Gross as the only arrestee in the case; however, he was not connected to the stabbing, Harris indicated.
At the time the report was written, which showed Gross as the arrestee, the stabbing suspect’s identity was not known, nor had he been arrested, Harris explained.
"The very intensive investigation by patrol and detectives that took place that night and in the days following, culminated in Simpson’s arrest on Sunday," he said, adding that there have not been similar parties at this home with underage drinking in the past, according to police records.
