A Cal Poly student and Cuesta College student each suffered a single stab wound to their upper bodies early Friday morning. The San Luis Obispo Police Department (SLOPD) responded to a 911 call at 12:47 a.m., right after the incident occurred on Foothill Boulevard near the entrance to Mustang Village, according to a SLOPD press release.
The victims, both male, were treated on the scene and transported to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center a few blocks away. They were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
According to the investigation, both victims were attending an event hosted by Cal Poly’s Alpha Gamma Rho (AGR) fraternity. One of the suspects attempted to gain entrance to the event, but was denied because the event was private. The suspect engaged one of the victims in a physical fight, and fled when it was broken up.
AGR is nine months into their year-long social probation for violating party registration policies last December. The fraternity is banned from throwing parties while on probation, but may hold brotherhood and philanthropic events.
Approximately 30 minutes later, the two victims were walking along Foothill Boulevard and were approached by the the original suspect along with a second. Both suspects started a physical fight with the victims. The second suspect stabbed both victims in the upper torso, then both suspects fled toward California Boulevard.
Both suspects were described as white men with olive complexions in their 20s wearing black shirts and blue jeans. The first suspect was described as a 5’6″ man with an average build and a dark beard, while the second suspect was described as a 6-foot, 160-pound male who may still be armed with a knife.
Based on statements made during the assault, investigators believed that the suspects are from Fresno, according to the release.
Anyone with information on the stabbing may contact SLOPD at (805) 781-7317 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.
