Police search for suspects in early-morning stabbing incident
Police are looking for two men who reportedly stabbed two victims during a botched attempted robbery early Saturday morning.
The incident occurred on the 1600 block of west San Jose Avenue at around 2:30 a.m. on July 23, according to Claremont Police Lt. Mike Ciszek. The two victims were walking down the street when the attackers approached and told them to “give up all they had,” according to Lt. Ciszek.
A fight reportedly ensued and, during the melee, the two victims were stabbed multiple times in the back and abdomen. The victims then hailed a taxi, which drove them to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, where they were treated for minor to moderate injuries.
The suspects are described as African-American men, about 5-feet, 11-inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. There was no description of clothing. The men were last seen running westbound on San Jose toward Mountain Avenue.
There was no property loss, Lt. Ciszek said.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Claremont Police Department at (909) 399-5411.
