Anapamu Street Stabbing
On July 29, 2022, around 9:00 pm, the Santa Barbara Police Department Combined Communications Center received numerous 9-1-1 calls about a stabbing in the middle of the 1st West Block of Anapamu Street.
Multiple officers responded to the scene and located a single adult male stabbing victim near Anapamu Street and State Street. Based on witness statements, it seems some type of altercation occurred between the victim and the suspect(s) before the stabbing. The suspect(s) were last seen fleeing on foot fleeing towards Chapala Street prior to police arrival.
Community members rendered the victim aid until police and paramedics arrived on the scene. Once on scene, officers applied a tourniquet to the victim to stop bleeding from an appendage. The stabbing victim was transported to Cottage Hospital by paramedics for treatment and is believed to be in stable condition.
The suspect(s) are still outstanding, and the police department is actively investigating this case. Based on the initial investigation, this incident does not appear to be related to the previous shooting incident at Bohnett Park or the stabbing that occurred earlier in the week.
