Corona Stabbing

RIVERSIDE (CNS) – A young man who stabbed a 14-year-old boy during a street confrontation in Corona was sentenced Friday to a year in jail and two years’ felony probation.

Isaiah Rudy Castillo, 20, of Corona pleaded guilty in January 2023 to assault with a deadly weapon under an agreement with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office. No charges were dismissed.

Superior Court Judge Dwight Moore certified the terms of the plea deal and imposed the stipulated sentence.

Castillo was arrested in October 2022 following a Corona Police Department investigation into the attack in the 1000 block of Border Avenue, near 10th Street.

According to Corona police Sgt. Jason Waldon, shortly before 4 p.m. on Oct. 21, Castillo and the victim, whose identity was not disclosed, were involved in an unspecified dispute.

Waldon said that during the confrontation, Castillo pulled a knife and stabbed the boy at least once, then fled.

“The victim was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment of non-life-threatening injuries,” the sergeant said.

The juvenile has since fully recovered.

Detectives developed leads pointing to Castillo as the assailant and tracked him to a residence in the vicinity of where the attack occurred, at which point he was taken into custody without incident.

Castillo had no documented prior felony convictions in adult court.
