San Rafael Police are searching for three men who allegedly assaulted and robbed a 22-year-old San Rafael man in the city’s Canal neighborhood late on Tuesday, Jan. 29.
Three Hispanic males, all around 5’ 10, approached the San Rafael resident around 10 p.m. in the 200 block of Canal Street and asked, in Spanish, for marijuana, according to police spokesperson Margo Rohrbacher.
“The whole conversation was in Spanish,” Rohrbacher said.
The suspects then demanded the victim’s wallet, knocked him down, went through his pockets and took a wallet, cash and a cellphone, Rohrbacher said. One of the suspects stabbed the victim once in his upper torso.
The victim suffered minor injuries and was treated at Marin General Hospital and released.
The suspects fled in a red Toyota pickup truck.
