A Gilroy man turned himself in to police after he allegedly stabbed a Morgan Hill man causing life-threatening injuries.

Morgan Hill police responded to a call at the El Toro Fire Station on Old Monterey Road about 3:17 a.m. June 13, reporting a man had been stabbed, according to Sgt. Troy Hoefling.

The victim, a 21-year-old Morgan Hill resident, had walked to the fire station for help, police determined. He suffered a large puncture wound to his stomach and was transported to San Jose Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Officers were able to find the nearby crime scene on Llagas Road by contacting witnesses in the area, according to Hoefling. The suspect allegedly stabbed the man at a party at a home on that street.

After the stabbing, the suspect fled the scene on foot, Hoefling said. Officers searched a perimeter around the home, but were unable to find the suspect.

The suspect was identified as Steven Trujillo, 20 of Gilroy, Hoefling said.

Trujillo surrendered the next day at the Morgan Hill police station, police said.

He has since been charged by the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office with attempted homicide and assault with a deadly weapon.

    You should all really seek help. Didn't your mothers ever teach you not to judge a book by it's cover? He is actually my friend and I've known him since freshman year at gilroy high. He would only do something like that in self defense. So for the sake of your guys' dignity, grow up.

    I wasn't trying to lecture you, I was trying to add support to your post. Also, if you have been in or around Morgan Hill since the early 1950's then, go ahead and share what you have seen happening in Morgan Hill over those years but, if you haven't, then, cease acting like you are the only person who knows what is going on here and that you are the only one who blames the various city councils and staff for promoting more low income housing. Many of us know who is the blame and many of us have been around here longer than you. GET OVER IT!!!

    You are the one spouting off your superior knowledge of the constitition and letting alll the posters know what you think the forefathers wrote just for you to spout the left wing socialist manifesto. No one else does this and your name calling is just a farce. Plus, no one likes you.

    Law background? This is basic civics, you half-wit. Honestly, if you don't know something that fundamental about our constitutional system, you have no business calling yourself an American, let alone a patriot. Heck, to pass the citizenship test to become an American, you're required to know these things. Yet you, who claim to be a "real American," don't. It's obscene. You cheapen what it is to be an American. You should be ashamed, but you don't have the wherewithal to be.

    Thats right yancey, I forgot your law background. That said, no one likes you. Calling people you do not know racist and bigots for speaking their mind kind of validates what I have been saying all along.

    Huh, since you were so quick to point out brumar's post, hh, yeah, that probably is you, as well. So how many accounts is that for you? 3? You're right, somebody on this board needs help.

    You also told me that states don't have police powers, which, while hilarious, betrayed such a profound and fundamental misunderstanding of our constitutional system that showed you as a complete freakin' idiot. And, honestly, if a bunch of racists and morons on the MH Times website don't like me, I think I'm doing something right.

    Don't try to lecture me about the State of California brumar. I have been the lone voice on this site for many years warning about the Mexican invasion, and the harm they are not only causing to this city, but this entire State. People are starting to wake up and realize that I have been right all along.

    For Morgan Hill we can blame city council that for years have been trying to squeeze as much low income property into this city as they possibly can. I warned many years ago what would happen and I was called a racist even though what I warned would happen did happen.

    Hispanics are now running amok in this city tagging, raping, kidnapping, murder and committing gang violence. It's too late to do anything about it now.

    Sorry to disappoint, but it isn't.

    I'm sure you'd like to think that only one guy in Morgan Hill recognizes the problems illegal immigration have brought to our fine town.....but there's more than one of us.

    There's a lot of us.

    It is you. I don't know why I didn't figure it out earlier. The same diction, the same vocabulary, the same curt two sentence comments, the constant accusations of other posters having multiple accounts. It's you, and it's pathetic.

    California already looks like this guy. Take a hard look. His fellow Amigo" and their relatives are resposible for all the tagging and garfitti that you see whenever you travel around this state plus, the shooting and stabbings. Hooray for Arizona and its effort to eradicate the negative economic impact these Cholo/Pacuco wannabes and their non caring families from its state and this country.

    Take a good look at the accompanying picture to this story. This goofy looking guy is the face of what the majority of California will look like in a few years. Grab your fiddle Yancey.
