Man Stabbed After Fight Breaks Out Outside Bar

A 26-year-old Santa Maria man suffered a stab wound Wednesday morning after a fight reportedly broke out in the parking lot of Louie B’s Bar.

Sgt. Jack Dunn said officers were called about 9:10 a.m. to Marian Regional Medical Center.

The victim, whose name has not been released, told police that a crowd had gathered outside the bar and that the fight moved to the rear of an adjacent parking lot at 127 E. Main St., according to Dunn.

The victim said he tried to intervene and was stabbed by an onlooker, who was urging for the fight to continue. He was unable to provide a description of the suspect, according to Dunn.

Dunn said the victim then fled to his home and later went to the medical center, where he was treated and released.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Police Department at 805.928.3781 x121.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
