Salinas Police Officers responded to a report of a stabbing that occurred on the 2000 block of Sucre Ct. When officers arrived, they located a victim with stab wounds to his face and neck area. A second stabbing victim was also located. One of the victims stated a bald male wearing all black clothes, entered his taxi and demanded a ride. When he refused to give him a ride, the suspect began stabbing him. The suspect then proceeded to rob the victim of personal property. The second victim tried to intervene and was stabbed as well.

The suspect was reported to have fled the area on foot toward N. Main St.

The victims were transported to a local hospital to receive treatment for their injuries.

This case was brought to a speedy resolution because of the cooperation of the community and their willingness to come forward to assist us with our investigation into this senseless act of violence.
