A suspect in the Jack in The Box stabbing in Canyon Country Saturday was misidentified, a sheriff's official said Wednesday.

The suspect, originally identified as a Jack in The Box employee and described as wearing a corresponding uniform, didn't work at the fast-food restaurant and was not wearing a Jack in The Box uniform, said Lt.
Brenda Cambra of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.

The suspect was wearing a uniform for Taco Bell and was an employee at a local Taco Bell restaurant, Cambra said. She was not sure at which Taco Bell the suspect works.

There is a Taco Bell on the northeast corner of Soledad Canyon Road and Crossglade Avenue, across the street from the Jack in The Box where the incident occurred.

Deputies were relying on video from Jack in The Box to identify the suspect, He was seen in a uniform and it was assumed that it was a Jack in The Box uniform, Cambra said.

Sheriff's deputies have not located either suspect in the stabbing that sent two known gang members to the hospital, Cambra said.

The uniformed Taco Bell employee and a male accomplice stabbed two rival gang members at approximately 8:21 p.m. Saturday night. The Taco Bell-clad suspect and the alleged accomplice made a run for it before deputies arrived.

Deputies do have the name of the Taco Bell employee but are not releasing the suspects' identity until he is arrested and they can confirm whether the suspect is a minor, Cambra said.
