San Luis Obispo triple stabbing victims named
August 8, 2011
San Luis Obispo police have identified the victims of a triple stabbing on Sunday at a birthday party on Garcia Drive. Meanwhile, the attacker remains at large.
Joseph Perez, 20, Raysean Ford, 23 and a 16-year-old boy suffered stab wounds in the early morning attack.
Following the initial investigation, it was not clear whether there was a single attacker or multiple suspects. Investigators are seeking information from any witnesses that attended the party.
Several 911 calls came in around 2:50 a.m. in which the callers reported fighting and that several people had been stabbed.
Upon arrival, officers found Perez in the street with multiple wounds in the abdomen and the 16-year-old with a stab wound in his right forearm. After being treated at the scene by firefighters and paramedics, Perez and the teen boy were transported to the hospital.
Raysean had been taken to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center for treatment to his injuries prior to police arrival.
Police say the attack may have been prompted by an argument at the party that involved the victims. The initial investigation had not determined whether the attacker or suspects were invited guests or intruders.
Those responsible face charges of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
