Mistaken identity: Officers dispatched to Ninth and Market streets regarding a stabbing Jan. 8 found a victim bleeding profusely from his chest with multiple stab wounds. The victim was very frightened and was having trouble breathing. The officers were able to render first aid and get a statement from the victim, who told the officers the suspect approached him about some stolen property. When the victim told the suspect that he had the wrong person, the suspect became enraged and said he was going to kill him. The suspect then left the area. The victim, who was homeless, went back to sleep only to wake later when he was attacked bythe suspect. The bloody scissors used in the attack were still on scene. The officers broadcast the suspect’s description. Officers found the suspect about one block from the stabbing, and the victim identified his attacker.
