San Luis Obispo police are searching for a man who allegedly stabbed another man Sunday evening at De Vaul Park on Madonna Road.

Shortly before 11 p.m., police discovered a man suffering from a stab wound at a picnic table in the park. Prior to the stabling, the victim and the suspect were engaged in an argument that led to the physical altercation.

The suspect, Geffery Stephenson, 19, fled the scene and headed south towards Los Osos. Police said Stephenson is homeless and might have a campsite on Gary Grossman’s property near the Post Office.

Emergency personnel transported the victim, who was suffering from a stab wound to the torso that punctured a lung, to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.

    This guy is a great example of a homeless person in SLO who needs a bus ticket back to his home. Nothing good comes from a bunch of young adults, hanging around, doing nothing but drugs.

      So what you are saying is, you want all of the born in SLO young drug using homeless to come home and hang in the park?

      Good luck with that NIMBY on your shoulder.

      Better yet, another reason to learn to defend yourself without a weapon; you can defend yourself anywhere (federal building, court house, airport, all the places carrying a firearm is prohibited), and you won’t have to worry about shooting any bystanders, not to mention the confidence you get from knowing how to handle most any situation.
