WARSAW, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Twin brothers were arrested in same home as stabbing suspect, Juan Alvarado, Thursday after police found marijuana on the property.

Thursday morning, police arrested 2 twin brothers, Andres Cervantes and Armando Cervantes, 36, from the same home they had arrested Alvarado on Wednesday night.

Police arrested Juan Alvarado, 25, after they responded to a call about a shooting and discovered a man with 14 stab wounds. Alvarado's brother, Hugo Alvarado was found nearby with a fractured leg and an injured head.

Police found J. Alvarado at a home on Columbia Street in Warsaw and arrested him without incident Wednesday evening.

The Cervantes twins were arrested after police found them with about a pound of marijuana, marijuana smoking devices and paraphernalia. Police also found them with the knife that was used in the stabbing incident.

J. Alvarado is being held on a preliminary charge of felony attempted murder with a knife. The Cervantes twins are being held on a felony charge for marijuana possession. Police say the twins did not appear to be involved in the stabbing but police will continue to investigate.

The victim, Ruben Enciso, 39, is listed as in serious condition at Parkview Regional Medical Center. Spokesman for the Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department, Chad Hill, told our partner in news, The Journal Gazette, that H. Alvarado is in fair condition and will likely face criminal confinement charges because witness reports suggest that he kept others at the scene from assisting Enciso.
