Police Seek Identity of Attempted-Murder Suspect in Convenience Store Stabbings

The public is being asked to help identify a man suspected of stabbing two people at a convenience store earlier this month, according to the Santa Maria Police Department.

The attacks took place shortly before midnight at the 7-Eleven store at 1017 N. Broadway, Sgt. Jack Dunn said.

The suspect was described as a heavy-set Hispanic in his mid-30s, 5-foot-9 to 6 feet tall, with a light complexion, glasses, mustache and goatee.

He was last seen wearing a royal blue Dodgers jacket, black shirt and khaki pants.

“The suspect is considered armed and dangerous, and should not be contacted by anyone other than law enforcement personnel,” Dunn said.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s possible identification or whereabouts is urged to contact the Police Department at 805.928.3781.

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.

Thanks for asking!
