Redwood City police are searching for the suspect in a stabbing at Sequoia Station Sunday night.

At 7:24 p.m., officers responded to a 911 call of a person down in front of the Safeway at Sequoia Station, police said. They arrived to find a group of people standing around a male in front of the south doors of the store.

The victim, who hasn’t been identified, “was bleeding significantly from two chest stab wounds and a stab wound to his right arm,” police said. Officers applied a tourniquet and pressure to the wounds until paramedics arrived. The victim was transported to Stanford Hospital to undergo emergency surgery for life-threatening injuries, police said.

Although police established a perimeter and spoke with witnesses, the suspect and weapon remained outstanding Tuesday morning.

“The suspect fled on foot and was described as a light skinned male, 30-40 years-old, medium build with a buzz cut,” police said.

Anyone that may have additional information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Redwood City Police Detective David Denning at 650-780-7141 or the Redwood City Police Department’s Tip Line at 650-780-7107.
