San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Robbery Unit are asking for assistance from the public to help identify and locate a suspect wanted in connection with a carjacking and stabbing.
Detectives said on June 7, 2013, at approximately 2:20 p.m., an unknown male suspect and his unknown female companion were verbally arguing in front of the Library located at 500 S. 28th Street in San Diego. The female and a small child left the scene in an unknown car. The suspect walked over to the adult male victim, who was sitting in the driver’s seat of his car parked across the street, and confronted him at the door.
