Santa Rosa man stabbed by two suspects
A homeless man in Santa Rosa was stabbed at his encampment on Tuesday night, but he did not suffer any serious injuries.
A police officer saw the victim walking with blood on his head at about 9:50 p.m. near Montgomery Drive and 2nd Street.
The 34-year-old man told police when asked that he had been stabbed in the head. He was then taken to the hospital for treatment, police said.
The victim was at a homeless encampment on the Prince Memorial Greenway next to U.S. Highway 101 when the assault happened, police said.
An argument began after two suspects approached the victim and another woman. One of the suspects took the victim’s bag and refused to return it, police said, and hit the victim when he took his property back.
The victim then fell to the ground and was hit in the back of the head with an unknown object, police said, and the suspects fled the scene.
The victim told police that the suspect might have had a knife when the attack occurred.
The victim described two suspects to the police.
The first suspect is a white man with strawberry blonde hair shaved on both sides of his head. He is 6 feet tall, wearing a red shirt and allegedly armed with a knife.
The second suspect is a white man with a heavy build, about 6 feet tall and wearing a black baseball hat.
