A 68-year-old man was stabbed Wednesday night while emptying the trash at a taco shop in Concord, Concord police Cpl. James Carroll said today. The victim, who works at Taqueria Los Gallos in the 2100 block of Willow Pass Road, was emptying the trash in the parking lot behind the restaurant shortly before 10 p.m. when a man approached him from behind and stabbed him once in the face and twice in the neck, police said. The victim told police he had been kneeling down in the Dumpster area looking for recyclables when he was attacked. He said the attacker didn’t say anything to him before or during the stabbing and he had no idea why he was targeted, Concord police Lt. Darrell Graham said. The victim said he never even saw the man’s face and was only able to describe him as a Hispanic man about 5 feet 6 inches tall wearing a dark sweatshirt or sweater. He did not know the suspect’s age, Graham said. The suspect was last seen running south through the parking lot toward Concord Boulevard, Carroll said. The victim was taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek and is expected to recover, Carroll said.
