Video: Police seeking help in identifying stabbing suspect

SAN JOSE (KRON) — Police released a video on Thursday of a suspect wanted for a November stabbing outside a bar in San Jose’s Willow Glen neighborhood.

The suspect and victim bumped into each other at Willow Den Bar located at 803 Lincoln Avenue around 1:00 a.m. on November 15, 2016.

The suspect confronted the victim, leading to an argument which continued outside on a sidewalk, before the dispute escalated into a fight.

The suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim at least once before he fled the scene, according to police Sgt. Enrique Garcia.

The victim was treated at a hospital.

Police released a video of the incident from the bar’s security camera — security guards are seen trying to split up the suspect and victim, who walk away from the business and exchange words while walking on the street, ending as the suspect is seen chasing down the victim on the road.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man between 25 and 30-years-old, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 180 pounds, with a scar on either the top or back of this head, wearing a white T-shirt, blue True Religion jeans and white shoes.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call police Detective John Vandenbroeck at 408-277-3835. Those who wish to remain anonymous may call Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at 408-947-7867.
