The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the help of the public to locate the suspect of an assault and carjacking that took place in the 23200 Block of Cajalco Road in Mead Valley near Perris, an official reported today.
The suspect stabbed a 58-year-old man in the neck before proceeding to take the man’s vehicle, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report.
The vehicle was located a short time later by deputies. It had been damaged in a single-vehicle crash and abandoned, Sgt. Gill Gonzalez said.
Officers then set up a perimeter and attempted to locate the man, but were unable to find him, according to Gonzalez.
In the report, the man is described as black male adult who is approximately six-feet-tall and bald. He was last seen wearing a white shirt, black pants, and white shoes.
The stabbing victim was transported to a local hospital to receive medical treatment and is expected to survive his injuries, Gonzalez said.
Anyone with information regarding the suspect or his identity is encouraged to contact Investigator Heath at (951)210-1000 or dispatch at (951)-776-1099.
