Stabbing Victim Hospitalized in Santa Maria

Santa Maria police are investigating a stabbing that occurred early Saturday at the north end of the city.

Officers were dispatched at about 1:30 a.m. to a report of a disturbance on the 900 block of West Lee Drive, according to Sgt. Jesus Valle.

On arrival, they detained several people who were attempted to drive away from the area.

"While officers were investigating the incident at the scene, it was learned that an adult male was stabbed during an altercation after a party in the area," Valle said. "The victim had been driven to Marian Regional Medical Center by unidentified persons in a private vehicle."

The victim, whose name was not release, suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Valle said.

No arrests were made, and the incident remained under investigation.

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!
