HESPERIA Authorities arrested a Hesperia man Tuesday night after he allegedly stabbed a man at a party over the weekend, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Hesperia officials said.


Detectives and Hesperia SMASH Gang Team members arrested Francisco Eduardo de los Angeles, 23, for the attempted murder of a partygoer on Saturday, according to Hesperia officials.


De los Angeles and his brothers reportedly crashed a party at a home in the 16100 block of Mesquite Street that was attended mostly by teens, Sue Rose, spokeswoman for the Hesperia station, said Wednesday. It was a back-to-school party of sorts, she said.


At about 3 a.m., de los Angeles who turned 23 that same day got into an argument with one of the attendees that quickly turned violent, officials said.


De los Angeles stabbed the adult victim once in the arm, once in the leg and six times in the torso, officials said. Friends drove the victim to a local hospital and he was later transferred to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center due to the severity of his injuries. He had suffered a punctured lung, according to a release.


Detective Todd Espindola was able to track de los Angeles down to a home in the 10700 block of Fourth Street and he was arrested.


He's scheduled to be in court today. Records show the Hesperia man also has a court date Jan. 17 to answer to charges of negligent discharge of a firearm and violating the terms of his probation.


De los Angeles was booked into the Victor Valley station and was being held on $1 million bail.
