UPDATE: Attacker still sought in stabbings at SLO party, police say

UPDATE 12:10 p.m. Monday: Police are still looking for whoever assaulted three San Luis Obispo men at a party early Sunday morning on Garcia Drive.

San Luis Obispo police identified the victims as Joseph Perez, 20, whom they found in the street with a knife wound to his abdomen; Raysean Ford, 23, whose injuries police did not describe; and a 16-year-old boy who had a stab wound to his left forearm.

Police did not name a suspect, but that person — or persons — would be charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, according to a news release.

The attacks took place just before 3 a.m. during a birthday party in the 1400 block of Garcia Drive. Several people called 911, police said.

“At some time point during the party, there was an argument between the victims and suspect(s),” police wrote in a news release.

They said they have not yet determined the cause of the argument, and do not know if the assailants were invited guests.

All three victims were taken to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center.

Detectives are asking those with information to contact them at 781-7317 or CrimeStoppers at 549-STOP.

Original story: Three people were stabbed overnight Sunday in San Luis Obispo along Garcia Drive, off Los Osos Valley Road in the western edge of the city, police confirmed.

San Luis Obispo Police Department Sgt. Sean Gillham said two of the three have already been released from a hospital.

The third victim was still being treated at a local hospital for wounds to the abdomen and is expected to survive, Gillham said.

The stabbing was reported just before 3 a.m. Sunday along the 1400 block of Garcia, he added.

Gillham declined to provide more details because the investigation is still in its early stages.

No suspect descriptions were available as of late Sunday, he added.
