A man waiting for a bus on Santa Rosa Avenue was stabbed in the chest late this morning, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said. A gold pickup truck pulled up to the bus stop in the 3100 block of Santa Rosa Avenue around 11:50 a.m., Sgt. Carlos Basurto said.
A white male passenger got out of the truck and began arguing with the man at the bus stop, then stabbed him in the chest, Basurto said. The suspect ran back to the truck, which sped north on Santa Rosa Avenue. The stabbing victim was taken to a hospital and had surgery this afternoon, Basurto said.
The stabbing suspect is a white male, 20 to 25 years old with short hair, and the pickup driver is a white or Hispanic male, Basurto said. The pickup is a 2003 to 2006 gold Chevrolet Silverado with chrome rims, has a bug shield on the front hood and has “Z71” affixed to the rear side, Basurto said.
