Arrest made in fatal stabbing of 16-year-old boy

Police arrested a San Francisco man Monday evening in connection with a stabbing that killed a 16-year-old boy Saturday and left two others injured.

Sergio Rocha, 38, was arrested at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital on Monday around 6 p.m. while he was being treated for an injury, police said. The Sheriff’s Department website shows Rocha is currently being held without bail on suspicion of murder.

Police officers responding on Saturday night to reports of a stabbing at Geneva Avenue and Mission Street in the Ingleside neighborhood found two injured victims and a witness who told them a third victim had been loaded into a vehicle and driven away.

That victim, 16-year-old Josue David Mejia Sanchez, was dropped off at the hospital, where he later died.

On Monday, police officials told the San Francisco Examiner a 38-year-old man was also stabbed in the altercation and a 48-year-old man suffered a swollen eye. It was not immediately clear if Rocha was the 38-year-old man injured in the stabbing.

The District Attorney’s office said Rocha will be arraigned Thursday and charged with murder for Sanchez’s death. He will also be charged with attempted murder and attempted aggravated mayhem in connection with a second stabbing victim.

This story has been updated to include the charges filed against Rocha.Crime
