Shortly before 3 a.m., the guard went to check on a bathroom at the business park in the 2000 block of Preisker Lane. Inside the bathroom, a man wearing a black hoodie pushed the guard and stabbed him in the chest.

While the guard suffered pain in his chest, because of his bullet proof vest he was not cut in the attack.

Santa Maria police officers arrived, but the man had already fled the scene. The assailant is a transient man, in his early 30s, with light brown or blond hair.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about this stabbing to call the Santa Maria Police Department at (805) 928-3781 ext. 2677. Tips can be made anonymously.

Clearly we need to make knife ownership a crime. This will stop this kind of incident because once knives are made illegal all criminals will turn in their knives.

Just a normal Friday night for our drug addled “homeless” population. He’ll be back there tonight.
