Somebody this month has stabbed two men in the neck on Southside Park neighborhood streets in Sacramento.
Police said that on August 18 a 61-year-old man was walking on U Street near 10th Street when a man walking in the opposite direction stabbed him in the neck. He was treated and released from the hospital later in the day.
On Monday, the same attacker is suspected of approaching a 75-year-old man in the area of 10th and T streets. He walked up behind the man and stabbed him in the neck.
The victim was taken to the hospital and later released after treatment.
The suspect is described as a black man with a medium build and short black hair. He is believed to be from 30 to 50 years old and between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet tall.
Sacramento police spokesman Officer Doug Morse said there was nothing to indicate that the attacks were racially motivated, but because both victims were older Asian men, the Police Department has put out a notice in Chinese to alert Asian community to the incidents.
