Police are searching for an unknown suspect who allegedly carjacked and stabbed a 48-year-old victim in front of a Logan Heights library on Jun. 7, the San Diego Police Department said.
Police say the victim was sitting inside his parked car in front of a Logan Heights library in the 500 block of South 28th Street just before 2:30 p.m. when a man armed with a knife walked up and told the victim to get out of the car.
The victim exited his car over the passenger’s seat and the suspect stabbed the victim in the leg, police said. The victim was then able to get away and call police. He was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
The suspect started the victim’s car and an unknown woman got into the vehicle with him. The pair drove away on Ocean View Drive, police said.
According to authorities, the suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his late 20s to early 30s, 5-foot-7 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a black tank top and light blue faded jeans.
On Thursday, nearly two weeks after the incident, police released a photo of the carjacking and stabbing suspect caught on surveillance video near the library.
Police say the suspect and the victim’s car are still outstanding. The stolen car is a black, four-door, 1994 Honda Accord with the California license plate 3GEC280.
Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is asked to contact the SDPD Robbery Unit at (619) 531-2299 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could receive up to a $1,000 reward for information that leads to arrest in this case.
