Suspect Sought in Double Stabbing


ANAHEIM, CA - Police Officers responded to two stabbing calls within a block of each other and within two minutes late Thursday evening. The first call was received at 7:59 pm reporting a male on the sidewalk in the 1100 block of W. Ball Rd suffering from a possible gunshot wound. At 8:01 pm a second call was received of a female suffering from a stab wound in front of the Holiday Inn in the 1200 block of S. Walnut St. When officers arrived they found a 32 year old male on the sidewalk in the 1100 block of W. Ball who had been stabbed, not shot. A 30 year old female who had also been stabbed was found in front of the Holiday Inn. Both were transported to a local hospital in critical condition and their prognosis is not known at this time.

Preliminary reports indicated both victims were stabbed by the same suspect, but it is not yet known if the victims were together or the attacks were separate crimes. The suspect was described as a male Hispanic, 20-30 years old, 220-240 pounds, wearing jeans and a hoodie. While the incident occurred near the Disneyland Resort there is absolutely no link to the resort and the resort was not impacted in anyway.
