Victim writes, "FYI they were tweakers lock your doors at night."

On February 10th, at approximately 11:15 pm, Deputies responded to a 911 call reporting a person having been assaulted with a knife in the 5400 block of Shangrala Lane in Camino.  Upon arrival Deputies made contact with a 24 year Camino man who was suffering from stab and laceration wounds.  The victim was immediately transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries, and at this time the victim is in stable condition.

According to the victim and witnesses, a vehicle arrived at the residence and two men approached the door of the residence asking for an individual who was not a resident at this home.  When the victim told the suspects that the person they were looking for did not live at this house, a verbal argument ensued.  After the suspects refused to leave the property, the argument turned physical between the two parties.  During the fight one of the suspects pulled out a knife and proceeded to stab and cut the victim.

The victim was able to return to his residence and call 911 for assistance.  The suspects returned to their vehicle (Silver/Gray Ford Taurus, unknown year) and fled prior to the arrival of Deputies.  The suspects are described as white male adults, approximately 30-40 years of age, thin build.

Due to the seriousness of this crime and the active nature of the investigation, the name of the victim is being withheld at this time.

If you have any information on this incident please contact Detective Dan Fulton at (530) 642-4715.
