Here’s a small nugget for you loyal TCB readers.
Looks like the weekend stabbing at the Niles Banquet Hall was NOT gang related as originally thought. This is not to say that someone in the attack was not involved in gangs, but the motive for the stabbing did not appear to be gang-related, cops say. I’ll have more on this incident in tomorrow’s edition of the The Argus. Just an FYI still no arrests.

A new detail has emerged in the Friday stabbing death of a 33-year-old San Jose man. Cops are now saying that victim Linh Lam was stabbed more than a dozen times during the incident beneath a grove of trees at the Vargas Road exit along northbound Interstate 680. Sunnyvale resdient Daniel Thein Mai, 20, has been charged with murder in the killing, and will be arraigned this afternoon. No motive has been established, cops say.
In an earlier version of my story about last week’s fatal stabbing on Interstate 680, I mentioned that the suspect was expected to be arraigned today. Well, turns out he won’t. Sources tell me that Daniel Mai of Sunnyvale, will be arraigned tomorrow (Tuesday) because he was not brought from Santa Rita county jail today.
