MEDIA ADVISORY/PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release No. 20130131-012
Thursday, January 31, 2013

Please Help Identify

Detectives are asking for the community's assistance with identifying the suspects involved in a stabbing.

On Wednesday, January 30, 2013, at approximately 4:20 p.m., the Sacramento Police Department responded to Del Paso Boulevard and Southgate Road on a report of two subjects who had been stabbed.  Officers arrived and found two female victims in their twenties suffering from multiple potentially life-threatening stab wounds.

At this time it is believed that an altercation occurred involving the occupants of two vehicles.  The incident appears to have been a "road rage" that started in the area of eastbound Interstate 80 and southbound Interstate 5.  The victims pulled over in the area of Garden Highway and Northgate Blvd, exited their vehicles, and became involved in a physical altercation with the occupants of the second car.   During the incident, the victims were stabbed multiple times.  After the assault, the victims got back into their car, drove to the area of Del Paso Blvd and Southgate Road and called the police.  The suspects reportedly got back into their vehicle and were last seen heading north on Northgate Blvd.  Detectives believe that Suspect #1 may be the mother of Suspect #2. 

Suspect #1 (mother) is described as:  a female Hispanic in her mid 30's to early 40's, approximately 5'6" to 5'7" tall and weighing 150 to170 pounds.  She has shoulder length dark hair with purple streaks and is believed to have been wearing the sunglasses pictured below.  

Suspect #2 (daughter) is described as:  a female Hispanic in her 20's, approximately 5'5" to 5'7" tall and weighing around 230 pounds.  She reportedly has dark hair that was in a bun at the time of the assault.

Suspect vehicle is described as: a newer silver or gray van possibly with tinted windows.

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this investigation to contact the Communications Center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357) or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
