Fresno police said Monday morning that officers arrested a known gang member suspected of stabbing a juvenile at Fashion Fair shopping mall on Saturday.

According to a news release, Prophet Hillard, 27, was booked into Fresno County Jail on felony assault charges and his bail was set at $75,000. He currently is on probation for felony assault and, as of Monday afternoon, remained in jail.

The 5-foot-5, 130-pound Hillard has a history of violence including assault on a police officer, assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, and criminal gun possession, police said.

Suspect Identified Via Security Video

Officers who were already at the mall responded to a fight between Hillard and the two juveniles. After viewing surveillance video provided by the mall’s security team, the officers identified the attacker as Hillard and later found him hiding in a restroom.

Officials said that in addition to arresting Hillard at about 6:40 p.m. Saturday, the officers found evidence related to the stabbing in the restroom.

One of the juveniles had a stab wound to his armpit and the other was struck in the back of the head with an unknown object. Both were treated at Community Regional Medical Center.
