Police are searching for a man who stabbed another man in a grocery store parking lot in Watsonville on Tuesday night. Officers responded to reports of a stabbing in the Mi Pueblo Food Center parking lot at 1437 Freedom Road at 9:47 p.m. When police arrived, the suspect, described as a Hispanic man in his early 20s, had fled and the victim was bleeding heavily from stab wounds to his upper left arm and chest, police said.
Police said the victim, who is also in his early 20s, had been loading groceries into the trunk of his car when the suspect walked by and gave him a “hard look.” The victim apparently glared back, and the suspect then attacked him with a knife, police said. After being taken to Watsonville Community Hospital, the victim was transported to a Bay Area trauma center for treatment. His wounds were initially considered life-threatening but he was said to be in stable condition around 2 a.m. today.
The suspect is believed to have fled on Freedom Boulevard. Police are still investigating whether the attack was gang-motivated, but said the victim told them he did not know his attacker or why he was stabbed.
