Two teenagers from northern Santa Clara County were stabbed following a disagreement at a Morgan Hill house party late Friday night.

The two victims were transported to San Jose Regional Medical Center with critical injuries resulting from the stabbing, but were in “stable” condition as of Monday morning, according to Morgan Hill police Sgt. Troy Hoefling.

One of the victims was stabbed at least nine times – once in the neck and several times in the torso, Hoefling said. The other victim was stabbed once in the neck.

The suspect was arrested about 12 hours after allegedly stabbing the two male victims, Hoefling said. Julio C. Medina, 19 of Morgan Hill, turned himself at the police station, after police had contacted “several” of his family members and friends during their investigation.

The incident happened about 3:20 a.m. Saturday at a home near the intersection of Hill Road and Diana Avenue, Hoefling said.

Medina knew the host of a party that he and others were attending at the home, police said. The two victims – an 18-year-old Sunnyvale resident and a 19-year-old San Jose resident – arrived at the party together, and were invited to the get-together by another attendee.

 Hoefling said the investigation so far indicates that all three were welcome at the home, until an argument broke out following an “insult” made by one party to another.

No evidence shows the incident is gang-related, police said.

After they were cut, the victims walked about two-tenths of a mile to a nearby unidentified location, leaving a trail of blood and other evidence on the way, Hoefling said.

The hosts of the party were among those who called police to report the crime, police said.

    There are people like this in every ethnicity -yes maybe the majority in Morgan hill are Hispanics , but this does not apply to everywhere else and to say all Hispanics are like this is a generalization that only the stupid make. In every city there are different ethnic majority's which commit crime so please do not generalize out of ignorance .[beam]

    *explicit sexual epithets. Things that have no business being said by anyone in public, let alone 12 year olds.

    Ah, you intended it as a declarative sentence. I keep forgetting you're incapable of constructing a coherent sentence. But, yeah, I've walked down Cosmo hundreds of times, sometimes wearing blue, sometimes wearing red, sometimes wearing black, white, green, you name it. Never had a problem, and I've never seen a group of clones in identical colored clothes like you described. I've seen some homies hanging out, sure, and I've had a few of them talk trash to me. But, I've seen that kind of behavior all over town. Heck, a couple months ago I was at the Community Center and witnessed a group of pre-teen boys shouting explicit epithets at passers-by. When they did it to me, I grabbed my phone and called MHPD. Care to venture a guess what ethnicity those kids were?

    Sure, let's meet at the baseball diamond.

    Was not a question, just a statement that you might agree with. Suggest tonight taking a walk down to Cosmo, maybe wear blue. Still want to meet you yancey to further discuss some issues. Maybe at the community park baseball diamond. Let me know.

    I think that was supposed to be an interrogative, but I'll be darned if I can't find a single question mark in there. Out of interest, fred, what part of Morgan Hill do you live in where you see that sort of thing regularly? Because I never have. Though, just like your claim that states don't have police powers, I'm sure that this is equally a fiction. Or maybe you saw it on TV, and you're so thoroughly brainwashed that you decided it's something you actually witnessed.

    Gee hh, what yance would do if he was walking down the street and saw a 5 or 6 hisanic males wearing red, same haircuts, same facial hair, all inked up with gang tattos would be to walk up to them and welcome them to the neighborhood, maybe invite them over for lunch. Right yancey.

    So in your animal brain, groups of people wearing red means that EVERYONE wearing red is a gang member. It's sad, most human beings can instantly recognize the fallacious reasoning there, but our little animal hh can't. He sees an Hispanic person, and in his mind, they're definitely a gang member and definitely illegal. And not only that, only hh, with his finely honed animal instincts, recognizes it. The police can't even figure out that this was gang-related! hh to the rescue!

    Of course Yancey......none of the thugs walking around downtown wearing red are affiliated with any gangs.

    Even when I see 3, 4, 5 or more walking together...all wearing solid red shirts...usually with a couple young girls, also in red's purely coincidental.

    There is no gang problem in Morgan Hill, right? Just plug your ears, shut your eyes, and keep spinning in a circle pretending none of this is going on. You putz.

    Criminals and gangs know that Morgan Hill is the place to be if you want to commit crimes.

    Morgan Hill is soft on crime and big on spending.

    Fascinating, too, that you presume to be able to do the police's job better than they can. If you're such an amazing detective that you were able to divine gang membership, why aren't you a cop, yourself? I mean, they could clear use your animal instincts, right? Heh.

    Oh man. You really are a dumb animal, hh/American/Billy Yancey. You see the color red and think, "GANG MEMBER!" But, only if it's being sported for a dark-skinned person. You're like a bovine-you see red and go nuts. Not that this is really news, you've made it clear that you're a low-functioning individual, more of an animal than a human, plenty of times before. But, hey! Empirical evidence-your response to the color red.

    Wow, I knew you were illiterate, hh/American/Billy Yancey, but you really outdid yourself there. Wow. I gotta screenshot that one.

    "Most parties" end that way, Yancey? DO hang out with the dregs of our society. Don't you?

    I've never been to a party that concluded that way. Anyone else?

    "No evidence shows the incident is gang-related, police said."

    Except the red shirt Holmes is wearing.

    Stabbing people at 3:20 in the morning sporting your plain red T-shirt? let me guess....super white shorts? Or was he going with the jeans worn way too low look?

    Most parties conclude without this sort of violence, CACHICA42. Every so often though, this happens. It's nothing new.

    What is this world coming to where you can go to a house party without being stabbed, shot, beat up???[sad] Where is all the anger coming from? Back in the day when we had house parties, it was so much fun!
