Teen Wanted For Stabbing Surrenders

WILKES-BARRE – A teenager surrendered to authorities Monday in Luzerne County, five days after he was accused of stabbing a high school student.

Officials said Kevin Espinoza, 17, of Wilkes-Barre was arraigned on felony aggravated assault charges as an adult.

Court records said Espinoza stabbed another 17-year-old on Lehigh Street, after a basketball game at GAR High School on Wednesday.

Investigators said the teenage stabbing victim is still recovering from surgery after the stabbing.

Espinoza’s attorney told Newswatch 16 that the stabbing was in self defense, because the teenager was jumped from behind after the basketball game.
