Oceanside police are searching for an unidentified suspect or suspects wanted in connection with an attempted homicide that happened one week ago.
On Dec. 13 just before 7p.m., police officers were called to an area in the 4800 block of Siesta Drive to check the welfare of a Hispanic male.
The man, now identified by police as 40-year-old Mexican national Humberto Flores Lozano (pictured above), had been the victim of an assault and had sustained a major head injury.
Due to his serious injuries, Lazano has been unable to communicate with investigators or answer questions about his assault. As of Thursday, he remains in critical condition at the hospital.
Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying or locating any suspects involved in this attempted homicide.
Anyone who may know Lazano or the suspects – or anyone who may have witnessed this assault -- is urged to contact Oceanside Police Detective TJ Dunn at (760) 435-4054 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
