Updated: Second arrest made in stabbing homicide


Hollister police Friday made a second arrest in the stabbing homicide of a local man.
Hollister police Friday arrested a 17-year-old Hollister male.
Hollister police officers already arrested a 17-year-old male from Morgan Hill on Wednesday for the suspected murder of Andres Guzman, 19, of Hollister, who was found Aug. 8 with stab wounds to the chest at Fourth and Powell streets. Guzman later died at Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital.
Police say they suspect it was a gang-related crime. In addition to the Morgan Hill resident’s arrest, Hollister police had served two search warrants in Hollister and one in San Juan Bautista in the case.
If the 17-year-olds are charged as adults, authorities would release their names and the proceedings would take place in public.
