Santa Monica police were on the lookout Monday for two suspects who allegedly stabbed a man multiple times in the forearm during an attempted robbery.
The suspects are described as male Latinos, aged 20-25, with one of them being 5 foot, 10 inches tall and the other one shorter. The suspects were wearing black hoodies and one of them had a mustache, police said.
The victim was walking home from the grocery store at 10:20 p.m. along the 2600 block of 17th Street on Friday of last week when he noticed someone whistling behind him. After being knocked to ground by a strike to the face from one of the suspects, the victim was allegedly stabbed in the forearm several times, police said.
The victim was driven to the hospital after discovering injuries underneath his sweatshirt. He was treated for minor injuries that required a few stitches and was released.
