     A man is in critical condition and another in police custody after a stabbing in the North County Monday afternoon. 

    According to Lt. George Darrah with Oceanside Police, officers responded to the 3600 block of Spyglass Way for reports of a stabbing at an apartment complex around 4:55 p.m. 

    There, they found a 21-year-old man suffering from stab wounds to his chest and arms.

    He was taken in a helicopter to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, where he is in critical condition, Darrah said. 

    A female witness told officers that Joseph Flores, 20, was responsible for the stabbing. He was next to the unnamed victim when officers arrived and was soon taken into custody. 

    Investigators have not determined a motive in this case.
