But Martinez said Alma Alvarez was violating a gang code by fighting with someone who was with child. “The gang code is that you don’t fight with anyone when they are with their kids,” he said. “It’s not considered manly. With girls, they’re supposed to follow the same guidelines.” Police arrested Alvarez on Blythe Street near her home. She was being held at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood with bail set at $540,000. Detectives connected Alvarez with an October 2006 nail clipper stabbing after hearing that “Flaca” was involved. Detectives re-interviewed the victim, who has since recovered from cuts to her face and arm, and she identified Alvarez in a photo array as the suspect in the attack, Martinez said. The suspect apparently extended the nail file on the clipper to use as a knife, Martinez said. Her cousin, Catalina was held on narcotics related charges. A man identified as Jorge Larios, 31, also an accused Blythe Street gangster, was arrested on a misdemeanor gang injunction violation. Blythe Street was the first gang to be targeted by the Los Angeles City Attorney in an injunction barring members from associating with each other, among other things, in the 90s. ——————————— For the latest news and observations on crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PANORAMA CITY – An accused female member of the Blythe Street gang has been charged with attempted murder in connection with a 2006 nail clipper stabbing of a 17-year-old girl in a beef over a boy, police said this morning. The woman, identified as Alma “Flaca” Alvarez, 19, was arrested on Labor Day, after she had been fighting with a former schoolmate who was three months pregnant and was shopping for clothes for her baby at a store in the 9800 block of Van Nuys Boulevard, said Los Angeles Police Detective Marc Martinez. The fight started inside the store and spilled outside, Martinez said. Alvarez’s cousin, Catalina, also 19, noticed the woman was pregnant and tried to stop Alma from fighting with her. But Alma got mad and punched Catalina to try to prevent her from interfering, police said. There were no serious injuries. The baby and the mother, who suffered bruises, were fine, said Martinez.
