A 39-year-old man who was stabbed in the head early Saturday morning, May 19, in East Palo Alto is expected to survive, according to East Palo Alto police.
Police found the East Palo Alto resident suffering from a stab wound to his head in the 500 block of Weeks Street after a 2:16 a.m. call about a stabbing, police said.
The victim was taken to a hospital with an injury that is not believed to be life-threatening, police said.
Police said the victim had been sitting in his car when he was approached by two suspects who demanded money.
When the victim refused to hand over any cash one of the suspects pulled a knife and stabbed the man. The victim then managed to put his car in gear and flee from the suspects, police said.
He drove about a half block and exited his vehicle when a passerby saw the injured man and called police.
