Gang-related stabbing of an Antioch man whose injuries have left him in a coma

22:10 |

One man has been jailed and two other suspects identified in the gang-related stabbing of an Antioch man whose injuries have left him in a coma, police said.
Police arrested Nicholas Van Camp, 31, of Antioch, downtown about midnight today after public tips led investigators to identify him along with Antioch residents Robert Garcia, 20, and Jovon Allen, 22, as suspects. Garcia and Allen remain at large, and should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.The victim, a 22-year-old Antioch man, was found on Wilbur Avenue about 2:20 a.m. Monday suffering from multiple stab wounds to his upper body, police said. He was taken to a local hospital, and while he is expected to survive, he was put into a medically induced coma to stave off infection risks, said Antioch police Lt. Leonard Orman.
Orman said an investigation revealed that the victim and the three suspects are all associates of the Norteño street gang, and that the victim disrespected the gang in some way. The suspects were open about making their involvement in the stabbing known, he said."These folks were not keeping this secret," Orman said. "They were broadcasting this out, trying to send a message that they will not stand for any disrespect (to the gang)."Orman said police got numerous tips after news of the stabbing surfaced. All three suspects have extensive criminal histories, he said.
Van Camp was booked into County Jail in Martinez on suspicion of attempted murder and use of a deadly weapon, and is being held without bail because of a parole violation. Orman said investigators will seek a gang enhancement to the charges when they present the case to the District Attorney's Office.
