On Sunday, at approximately 12:20 am, deputies responded to a report of a stabbing in the 6600 block of Sueno Road in Isla Vista. Deputies learned two male victims were walking on the sidewalk after a party when one bumped into an unknown male subject accompanied by another male and two females. A heated confrontation ensued, followed by a physical altercation among the males. During the fight, one of the unknown male subjects pulled out a knife and stabbed both victims. One victim had two stab wounds, and the other had one. While responding to the scene, it was believed that the suspect(s) were last seen in the 600 block of Pasado Road. County Fire and AMR responded, and both victims were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Deputies established a perimeter on Sueno Road and Pasado Road from Camino Pescadero to Camino Del Sur. A K9 team responded, and a search for the suspects was conducted upon arrival. A blood trail at Camino Pescadero and Pasado Road led deputies over one hundred yards and through several backyards. The victims did not provide details of what occurred, and both stated they did not know the suspects. The investigation has been turned over to our Criminal Investigation Bureau.
