Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a man who stabbed a man after he intervened in a fight involving a woman in San Leandro Sunday night, a police lieutenant said. Officers responded just after 10 p.m. to a report of a male who had been stabbed in the arm and was being treated at San Leandro Hospital, according to Lt. Jeff Tudor. The victim, a 25-year-old San Leandro man, told officers that a man stabbed him after he tried to break up a fight between the man and an unidentified woman in the 1000 block of East 14th Street around 9:45 p.m., police said.
The victim was treated for a small laceration to his upper arm and released. Officers searched the area for the suspect and the woman involved in the incident but were unable to locate them. The victim told police that after the stabbing, the suspect ran southbound on East 14th Street and that he did not know where the woman went, according to police. “We are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect and the female he was arguing with before the stabbing occurred,” Tudor said.
Police said the suspect is described as a white man who is about 19 or 20 years old and was wearing a dark jacket, dark jeans and a dark baseball hat at the time of the attack. The female involved in the incident was described as being a white woman around the same age with dirty blonde hair who was last seen wearing blue jeans and a t-shirt. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call San Leandro Police Det. Sgt. Henderson at (510) 577-3238.
