Temecula Police officials arrested a 23-year-old woman for attempted murder after she repeatedly stabbed an acquaintance shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday evening, Jan. 30 at the Shogun Restaurant in the 41500 block of Margarita Road in Temecula.

Stephanie Frederico of Murrieta went to the restaurant and stabbed her 28-year-old female friend twice. Frederico’s acquaintance was there celebrating another friend’s birthday, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s Report.

"The suspect reportedly traveled to the restaurant for the sole purpose of attacking the victim," said Sgt. John Wade in the Advertisement

report.

After Frederico stabbed her acquaintance twice, she fled the scene but was stopped and detained by officers arriving to the emergency without incident, according to Wade.

The female victim’s stab-wounds were non-life-threatening and she was expected to survive after being transported to a local hospital for emergency medical treatment.

Frederico was transported and booked at Southwest Station in Murrieta for attempted murder.

An investigation into the incident is still ongoing and anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Detective Mejia at Southwest Sheriff’s Station at 951-696-3000.

I have lived in temecula pretty much my whole life and love it here but with that being said there are some POS that live in this town. The girl who did that stabing comes from a family who all have problems with the law. The brother who goes by "FED" has been in and out of jail and has been going around temecula for years making problems for everyone. His sister was just in jail for stabbing someone last year, the brother was in jail last year for Beating a guy half to death with a baseball bat. It's really sad that a person had to get really hurt and my heart goes out to her but with that being said, I was always told that " YOU ARE THE COMPANY YOU KEEP" and let me just give anyone who reads this a heads up that if you see this group of friends around I would turn around and leave ASAP, All that they do is go around and look for a fight to get into. They are always on drugs, and drunk they sell drugs to kids that says enough about them right there!!! And the guys b-day party that they where at isn't any better he is apart of the problem . So if you see a group of guys all have full tats look like they are zombies because of all the drugs get your family out of there ASAP. And the funny part about this is they will read this and think that they are so cool because someone took the time to say how bad they are it's really sad You guys are little kids grow the hell up u all have kids try to raise the right way. And do all of temecula a favor MOVE NOW !!!! I wish I could post all of the names of the people I am talking about but like I said they have kids and I don't want people to turn there back on the little ones because of there parents. So if any police are city people read this please don't think that the stabbing was a random act that the sister did this group has been setting people up for years I hope to god that she gets everything that is coming to her and they all do to.

Alan, the key to your comment is "been in and out of jail"
That is our fault as we don't want to pay to keep them in jail.

Alan I completely agree that you are the company you keep, so with that being said how do you know so much about them?? Either you are a part of it, or you are stalking them. Which one is it?...

For anyone else that may be interested. Out of respect, unlike Alan here, I wont divulge personal matters on a public site(something we can all agree is extremely disrespectful to a family that has just had something tragic happen to them). But I will say mental health was at play here. She should have undergone a complete mental evaluation the first time she was institutionalized. Instead she was released after a few days. But that is a discussion for a different time. So Alan, all I ask is a pinch of respect (something I'm sure you can manage). Let the police do their investigative work (they do train for that you know). Spreading your particular brand of hatred will not help anyone involved here.

The Federico family have always been and will always be trash. I've known them since the early 90s and they have never been anything less than trouble. The fact that the party was planned and announced all over Facebook by the suspects own brother should say enough about how Stephanie knew they would be there. It was a set up. The victim in this case is no better though. She definitely didn't deserve to be stabbed, but she's a known white supremacist who constantly runs her mouth and starts stuff with other girls. You can Google her name and find endless articles about her and her ex boyfriend who is very prominent in the neonazi movement. I only hope that the person whos bday it was (you know who you are) learns once and for all that these people aren't your friends. J , you have real friends and don't need these people.

RE: someone save Alan:
First off I dont hang out are stalk this group of friends like I said I have lived in temecula my whole life and am around the same age as these people and have seen how they act!!
And you wanna talk about respect thats a big word to use when it comes to these people they have been going around town for years disrespecting everyone. And I am not here to get in a pissing match on here I just wanted to give the people that read this a heads up. I am going to leave with saying this, imagine this you where at dinner with your family and your dad, r brother, r boyfriend trys to jump in to stop the girl from being stabbed and they them self get stabbed and get killed how would u feel then. This goes with all the fights that this group has been in, at any time someone could of tried to break it up and been hurt them self. You hear storys all the time of people trying to break up fights and then getting a knife are gun pulled on them how would live with your self if it was a family member.

YOUR ALL FULL OF HATE AND IGNORANCE. ALAN IS A SPACE CADET. DO YOU ALAN REMEMBER THE STICKS, BY THE WINNERY, HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU GET BEAT THERE? THIS IS A PURE EXAMPLE OF THE SYSYTEM LETTING A MENTAL PATIENCE DOWN. WE HAVE A SURPLUS OF STATE FUNDING, BUT KICK OUT EVERYONE THAT NEEDED MENTAL HEALTH. HOW MUCH DAMAGE WILL OUR SOCIETY ALLOW BY THE STATE LEGISLATORS WHO VOTED TO DOWN SIZE AND CLOSE DOWN MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIES. IF WE ARE TO MAINTAIN A MODICUM OF CREDIABILITY WITH RESPECT WITH ALAN HAS COMMENTED WE WILL CONTINUE TO MEASURE HOW COLD IS TWICE AS ZERO. ALAN I GIVE YOU FREE GRATIS FOR NOTHING, YOUR IGNORANCE IS A CLEAR EXAMPLE OF WHY LOSER ALWAYS FAIL TO PLAN, AND YOU MAINTAIN A DEGREE IN AMATUER PHYSIC, ONE OF THE COMFORTABLE CACOONS OF CONFORMITY THAT SUFFERS FROM VERBAL DIARRHEA AND MENTAL CONSTIPATION, PUNK!

I LIKE THE FEDERICOS THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE FOR ME. YES THEY PARTY JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE DID ON SUPER BOWL SUNDAY. THEY ARE NOT LACKIES, THEY WERE RAISED IN TEMECULA AND FOR THE MOST PART LOVE THE COMMUNITY. THEY REMAIN HERE BECAUSE OF THE LOVE THEY HAVE FOR THERE FRIENDS, EDUCATORS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT, AND OTHERS. STEPHANIE NEEDS HELP AND THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT BY RIVERSIDE COUNTY'S FINEST, TEMECULA POLICE DEPT. THEY WILL COME TO THE REALIZATION THAT STEPHANIE IS ILL. NOT A SET UP, WAS TOLD SOMETHING BY A FRIEND THAT SET HER OFF.

Sad to say but, something like this was bound to happen sooner or later. Trouble follows this group of friends. There is more to life than partying everyday.

its a sad thing all around however this girl is mentally ill. She was just released from a psychiatric facility in Orange County so yes the system did fail but when psych facilities see that their clients are doing well, presenting well and if a 5150, 5250 is completed these facilities cant continue to hang on to people. So they are released until the next time they enter again. Unfortunately it is just a sad cycle for the mentally ill.

Everyone has so much hate towards the Federico yes I do agree Stephanie needs to be punish to the full extent and hopefully she will get help but as far as the brother that had nothing to do with the stabbing and there was no set up it's not his fault. He is a great person and has a loving heart he would never want to hurt his friends...and who says they were partying!!! They were just at dinner people!!! And for you Alan you better shut your mouth there is no reason for you to go and talk all this crap when you have noooo idea what you are talking about!! Get the facts straight you idiot! They are my friends!! These people are so caring and loving to their kids never ever would they sell drugs to them!!! So stop trying to act like you what's going on when you don't thank you!

Trouble definitely follows this group of People and always has!! They may be good parents who knows but to have as a friend not so much. All they do is party and get into fights no matter where they go. I knew Stephanie growing up, even called her a friend at one time and she's always been in and out of trouble! Her family needed to get her the help she needs but now it's too late.

Listen up Alan...I'm sorry my brothers made you feel uncool in highschool...probably made you cry so you felt weak enough to talk smack on a public forum..you look ridiculous speaking I'll of a person you couldn't talk to face to face..I am stephs older sister...I wanna stick up for her ..but to someone as incompitant as you its pointless..I love her and she was diagnosed with schizophrenia when she was 18, I wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy..hopefully your children just grow up as stupid and scared as you...

Your brothers were douchebags in High School, honesly. Ryan was always everyones third wheel and Stephanie had to resort to buying friends by spending money on them to make people hang out with her. Alan knows what's up (I know him) and let me tell you that kid was THE GUY everyone wanted to be friends with. Unlike you though, he comes from an amazing family with parents that were always involved with us. We've all grown up dealing with the nuisance of the Federico family. Jason belongs rotting in jail after he beat that guy to a bloody pulp. Now Stephanie will be in jail forever too. Facts don't lie, Your family is trash, nothing to be proud of.

Good for you having weak friends..None of you can touch my family nor say anything to hurt them...my brothers are amazing people. Say what you want. You guys are wishing that an innocent mentally ill girl should go to jail. You look worse for every comment you make. Sticking up for people that are to weak to say something to someone's face. Steph was the most beautiful girl in my highschool. She was also incredibly smart. I doubt there is anyone that would say that about you. Steph loved spending money on her friends..your turning that around..your a sick person. You don't know my family..you don't know me so get a life you typical temecula reject. You all are pathetic. Continue to live your mundane lives with your lifted trucks and overpriced clothes... And leave my family alone.YOU KNOW NOTHING

It doesnt matter thats just an excuse mentally ill. It dont matter she goes straight to prison. Family will always find an excuse.. but she did wut she did n she has to pay for it. Its like looking for an excuse for a drogadict that kills someone. U cant. Some part of her got her todo that that only god knows wut went through her head..

Love to the Federico family.. Your family and friends know who you really are and all the things you have done for others. The people spreading hate are hypocrites. Some of temeculas finest. The Connor family is preying steph gets the help she needs. Its was very difficult to see Stephanie get sick over these past few years.

Comment #28 | Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 11:21 am
It is really something to read all of the terrible things you have to say about this family. You have the right to make the judgements you do, but the weight of such judgements will weigh heavy on your minds, whether consciously so or not.

That being said, I have known some great things to come from this family and I felt I needed to voice that. The worst part about this to me is that this young girl, Stephanie Federico, has severe mental illness. I'm sure most of you did not think that such actions could stem from a less fortunate soul. That somehow she and her family are trash. I hope those of you that were quick to judge take a moment in the future to reflect on how little you may actually know about the situation at hand.
