Antoine Andre Wong, 21, of Wildomar was taken into custody early Tuesday morning after being picked up at the Circle K on Mission Trail in Wildomar.
“Wong was taken into custody for outstanding local warrants for his arrest. Officers also recognized Wong for his involvement in an assault that occurred on July 21, 2012 in the city of Lake Elsinore,” a statement from the Lake Elsinore Police Department read today.
According to investigators, a 21-year-old man was swimming in Lake Elsinore near W. Lakeshore Drive and S. Kellogg Street with several members of his family and friends when “a verbal altercation ensued.”
The squabble was between the man and a family member, but a group of three other males in the area thought he was yelling at them, police reported.
The three confronted the man. The situation escalated when the man’s mother intervened and one of the males punched her, police reported.
Tensions intensified when the victim defended his mother and was punched and stabbed by the suspect, according to police. The victim was treated by Cal Fire at the scene and later transported to Inland Valley Medical Center for additional treatment, police reported.
Updates on the victim’s condition were not made available.
Police have not provided details on the two other males involved in the investigation, which is ongoing.
