The officers encountered two victims at the scene. Â The first victim, a 39 year old male resident of El Centro had several stab wounds to his upper torso. Â The second victim, a 49 year old male also of El Centro suffered bruises to his body as if he had been in a fight. Â Both victims were transported to a local area hospital for treatment and later released. Â Neither victim had significant injuries.
Patrol officers with the help of detective personnel took statements from the victims and some witnesses. Â Conflicting statements were given by the involved parties, making timely investigation difficult.
Â “Right now, we are unclear as to where the assaults took place and we have no suspect information other than three unidentified males”, said Commander Jeff Mason. Â “We are seeking the public’s assistance with our investigation and we hope someone maybe able to give us a clear picture of what happened”, Mason said.
