Three Redding residents are behind bars following an investigation into a stabbing late last month. Around 3:40 Saturday morning, officers responded to a large party on Lincoln Avenue for reports of a stabbing. When they arrived they found the victim, 18-year-old Lonnie Hooser of Redding, with a single stab wound from an unknown suspect. Hooser was taken to the hospital where he is expected to recover.
Two days later a witness came forward with video of the fight that helped officer and Hooser identify the suspect as 21-year-old David Glenos Jr. of Redding. An arrest and search warrant were served at Glenos Jr.'s home on Court Street. He was arrested and confessed to stabbing Hooser.
While officers searched Glenos Jr.'s home, they found evidence linking Glenos Jr. to the stabbing along with a loaded short barreled rifle. Glenos Jr. admitted to owning the illegal firearm. Officers then interviewed the other residents of the home. 48-year-old David Glenos Sr. admitted to knowing about the short barreled rifle. 19-year-old Joseph Glenos, found out to be an ex-felon and prohibited from possessing any firearms, and a 16-yer-old juvenile admitted to knowing about the rifle and their ability to possess the firearm. Joseph and the juvenile were arrested for possession of a short barreled rifle.
