Police: Calif mom was getaway driver in stabbing

A California woman was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after police say she drove the getaway car for her teenage son who allegedly stabbed a boy.

Police say 42-year-old Margaret Suazo of San Jose was driving with her 15-year-old son and another teen last Thursday when they spotted a 13-year-old gang rival.

Her son is accused of exchanging words with the rival then leaving the car, chasing him down and stabbing him.

Sgt. Jason Dwyer says the son got back into the car and Suazo drove them away.

The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.

The San Jose Mercury News reports ( http://bit.ly/zLG1fP) that Suazo's son was arrested and booked as a juvenile. Police are looking for a second teen who may also have been involved.

Police did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press, so it could not be determined if Suazo had an attorney.
