Both men were taken to the hospital; Sanchez received stitches to his ear and was booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Station on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, where he remains in custody.
The victim was admitted to the hospital, but his wounds were not life-threatening. The intervening party left before deputies could talk with him and is being sought by investigators. Efflandt said that the attack did not seem to be gang-related.
