Ceres Police Department spokesman Lt. James Yandell said that the stabbing was reported at 8:25 p.m. at the park located in the 2100 block of Lunar Drive. By the time the first officer arrived, one victim had been driven by a family member to the Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Station on Mitchell Road near the Modesto Airport.
