Police released a sketch of a man who attacked two college students in their apartment with a knife earlier this week.
Police are searching for a male, possibly Hispanic, 19 to 25 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall with a thin build. He has dark skin, high cheekbones and “sun spots” on his face. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled up so that just his face was exposed.
At 10:30 p.m. police received reports from a residence in the 200 block of Playa del Rey in the Canal neighborhood. The man, armed with a knife, had come into the apartment and confronted the two female college students, ages 18 and 19, according to police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher.
"There was a physical fight between the suspect and one of the victims as the other victim was calling police," she said.
The suspect fled before officers arrived. One of the victims had a minor injury and was treated and released by paramedics.
"The suspect received substantial facial injuries and possible stab wounds to the upper body and he may seek medical attention," Rohrbacher said. Hospital emergency rooms and clinics in the Bay Area are asked to report a patient matching his description.
