Arraignment postponed for suspect in CHP officer stabbing

The arraignment Thursday for a man who allegedly stabbed a California Highway Patrol officer several times has been postponed until next week, prosecutors said.

Noel Corpuz, 44, is set to be arraigned Feb. 9 on attempted murder, assault on a police officer, resisting arrest with force and other charges. He is being held on $5 million bail.

Officer Andre Sirenko suffered life-threatening injuries during the Tuesday stabbing in South of Market but was later listed in stable condition.
