A 23-year-old woman will be arraigned June 23 after being charged with attempting to kill another woman in what Anaheim police said was a gang-related attack.
Becky Rivera was charged Friday with one felony count each of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and gang vandalism, as well as a misdemeanor count of vandalism, according to court records. She also faces sentencing enhancement allegations of gang activity, personal use of a deadly weapon and inflicting great bodily injury on the victim.
Rivera made her initial appearance Friday in the jail courtroom in Santa Ana but did not enter a plea.
Rivera is accused of repeatedly stabbing a woman about 12:40 p.m. May 28 in the 1200 block of North Placentia Avenue, said Anaheim police Sgt. Jake Gallacher. The victim, whose name was withheld, was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center in critical condition, but was expected to recover, Gallacher said.
