Modesto Police detectives are investigating a stabbing that left a 26-year-old male victim in critical condition. Police have one person in custody and believe there maybe more suspects involved.

On Sunday March 11th, just before 2 a.m., Modesto Police officers working the Downtown Entertainment District were flagged down by security from the Aqua Night Club, located at 910 12th Street. Security reported a stabbing had just occurred in front of their business and they had chased the suspect, who was reported to be armed with the knife, into the Speak Easy Lounge located at 928 12th Street, where the suspect had temporarily eluded capture.

Police officers located a male victim, who appeared to be suffering from multiple stab wounds lying outside of the Aqua Night Club. The victim was transported to a local hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery. He is currently listed in critical, but stable condition.

Additional officers converged to the area and began to look for the stabbing suspect. Officers located the suspect, Daniel Quinn Gonzales, a 19-year-old Ceres residence, as he emerged onto 12th street. Gonzales ran after seeing the officers and was eventually apprehended near J Street and 11th Street.

Officers have not yet determined a motive for the assault and are still piecing together the facts that led up to the stabbing. Investigators have learned the victim was inside the Aqua Shi Night Club earlier in the evening, when some sort of confrontation occurred between the victim and Gonzales.

At closing time as the victim exited the club, Gonzales and at least one other suspect approached the victim from behind and began to assault him. Aqua Shi security was able to intervene and chased Gonzales as he fled. Security was able to flag down the officers who were nearby, and that is when the officers located the victim.

Gonzales was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail for attempted murder. Police believe additional suspects were involved in the assault and are following-up on leads. This case remains an active and open investigation.
