Shasta County Sheriff's detectives have little to go on in the search for an early morning stabbing suspect.
They were called to a home on Red Bluff Street in the City of Shasta Lake just before 12:30 a.m. Sunday, where they found Jesus Canela with a 1/2 inch wound to his stomach.
Canela told deputies he had been at a friend's house on Grand Avenue drinking all day, and left to walk home at about midnight. He was stabbed on the way home but said it was dark and he wasn't sure who stabbed him or exactly where it occurred. He could only describe the suspect as a white male in his early 20's, with a backpack.
A search of the area turned up no obvious crime scene or suspect.
Canela was taken to the hospital for treatment. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Shasta County Sheriff's Office at (530) 245-6540 or (530) 245-6025.##
