KINGS BEACH, Calif. — A 24-year-old Lake Tahoe man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a stabbing last week, officials said.

According to the Placer County Sheriff's Office, at about 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 9, two local males got into a fight in the 200 block of Fox Street in Kings Beach, during which Carlos Rocha Lara, 24, pulled a knife and stabbed a 19-year-old male in the abdomen and forehead.
