Sacramento Police Investigate Stabbing Beneath Capital City Freeway in Midtown

SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Police Department is investigating a stabbing on 26th Street between W and X streets.

Around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, they received a call about a large fight in the area.

The victim in this case was badly injured in the stabbing but he’s in the hospital recovering and is expected to be OK.

Police lights and crime scene tape flooded 26th Street as investigators collected evidence from area.

“Our officers arrived on scene and they located a male adult who had at least one stab wound. He was transported to a local area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries,” said Sergeant Vance Chandler, Sacramento Police Department.

Police are still searching for the suspects.

“Based on the information we have right now we believe there were multiple people involved,” Chandler said.

Right now, police don’t have any suspect description.

Several people experiencing homelessness live under the overpass and police say some of them were involved in the fight, it’s unclear whether the suspects or victim were staying in the area.

“It’s pretty close to my house so it’s kinda wild,” said Henry Plesser

Neighbors like Plesser are concerned that this happened so close but they’re not shocked.

“At this time of day, I wouldn’t expect something like this to go on. But it’s not super surprising. Its Broadway. It’s a little bit dirty but yeah,” Plesser said.

If you know anything about this crime, please call Sacramento Police.

During their investigation, 26th Street between W and X streets will remain closed to traffic.
