The Turlock Police Department is searching for a suspect who stabbed another man in the chest in an apparently unprovoked attack Saturday afternoon.

The male victim sustained one stab wound to his chest, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Steve Rodrigues. The victim is expected to recover from his injury.

The attack happened at 2:31 p.m. Saturday in the 1600 block of W. Main Street.

The victim told investigators he had been riding his bike on W. Main Street when he saw a man running at him with a knife. The suspect was yelling and screaming at the victim, but it’s unknown what he said.

The victim said he jumped off his bike and tried to run from the man, but the attacker caught him and stabbed him once in the chest, before fleeing the area.

The victim said he did not know his attacker and didn’t know why the attacker targeted him.

The suspect was described as a white male between the ages of 30 to 35 years old. He had blond hair and a fair complexion and has an average build.

Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to contact the Turlock Police Department at 668-5550.
