REDDING, Calif. - Police arrested a teen Thursday morning who matched the description from a stabbing that left a person in critical condition on Wednesday night on the 3300 Block of South Market St., according to the Redding Police Department. 

The 17-year-old suspect was arrested a block away from where the stabbing occurred walking on Terrill St. while wearing blood-stained clothing that matched surveillance video from the incident.

Redding Police arrived at a call of a man down on South Market St. at 11:02 p.m.

Police found a man unresponsive with a stab wound in the middle of the roadway. The man was transported to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.

The southbound lane of South Market St. was closed from 11:15 p.m. to 5:40 a.m. while investigators conducted their search.

Video surveillance from a business in the area depicted the victim being viciously attacked for an unknown reason in a parking lot. The suspect then fled on foot and the victim collapsed from his injuries on South Market St. after running, according to police.

The teen was arrested and booked into Shasta County Juvenile Hall for attempted murder. The reason for their actions remains unknown.
