Mary Margaret FuentesA search is underway for an 18-year-old, identified as a gang member, who is accused of stabbing and injuring his 70-year-old neighbor on Saturday, police said.

The victim received non-life-threatening stab wounds and was taken to a local hospital for treatment, said Sgt. Rick Martinez of the Anaheim Police Department.

The stabbing was reported about 11:36 a.m. in the 2500 block of West Gramercy Avenue. Witnesses told officers that the woman was standing in front of her house when she was stabbed in the head and ears with an unknown object, Martinez said.

Police said they were looking for Alfredo Gonzalez, 18, whom they described as a known gang member. Police also questioned a man who they believe drove Gonzales away after the attack.

A motive for the attack was not known, according to Martinez.
