A 29-year-old Manteca man who said he was walking to the store was jumped and stabbed Saturday at about 6 p.m. in the 700 block of Greenlaven in the Walnut Place neighborhood in Central Manteca.
The victim told Manteca Police he had never seen the two men before and had no idea why they were attacking him.
He was hit three times in the back while he covered his head with his arms. After the two fled northbound from Greenhaven and Victory Avenue, the victim reached with his right hand around his left side and saw blood on his hand. Realizing he was stabbed, he walked back to his house and his girlfriend drove him to a local hospital emergency room for treatment of a non-life threatening wound to his upper back area.
The victim gave the following description of the two suspects:
one was a Hispanic male about 19, with slicked back black hair, dark jean pants, black baggy pullover sweatshirt with hoody, and was clean shaven.
the other was a Hispanic male about 20 with short black hair, a mustache, and dark clothing.
