On Monday, Oct 15, Hemet Police and Fire were dispatched to a residence in the 1200 block of W. Oakland Avenue, between North Street and N. Hamilton Avenue after receiving reports of a gunshot wound victim. When authorities arrived, they located a victim suffering instead from stab wounds.
Initial reports were that a victim was shot in the hand. Upon further investigation, police reported the victim’s injuries were revealed to be caused by a knife.
The suspects involved were allegedly two white males who had already fled the scene by the time officers arrived. Officers quickly searched the area to locate the suspects, but to no avail. One of the men is described as having a bald head with numerous tattoos on his body. This male is believed to be in his late 20s and approximately six feet tall. The other man was described by witnesses as having “darker skin,” but still identified as a white male. He is also considered to be in his late 20s and approximately five feet and five inches tall.
The victim was treated by first responders and later transported to the Hemet Valley Medical Center, where his condition is unknown. Neither the victim’s name nor other information has been released pending further investigation, police said.
