On May 10, 2012, at 4:07 PM officers from the Redding Police Department were dispatched to 1250 Parkview Dr. (South City Park) due to reports of a large group of approximately 20 people fighting. While officers were responding to this location additional reports were received that there was a subject bleeding at the Safeway grocery store located across from South City Park. Officers were then told there was a stabbing victim at Shasta Regional Medical Center that stated he had been stabbed at South City Park.
Officers responded to all three locations and conducted an investigation. The victim at S.R.M.C. was identified as 22 year old Tristan Almond of Redding. Almond had sustained a stab wound to his right chest. The injury does not appear to be life threatening. Officers learned that Almond was at South City Park and got into an argument with the suspect who is not known by the victim. A physical altercation between the two occurred and the suspect stabbed the victim with a knife. The suspect is described as a white male, 6’4” tall, 165 pounds, and was wearing a black t-shirt, and black baseball cap. After being stabbed the victim fled the location to seek medical attention. It is believed the suspect possibly entered the Safeway store while fleeing the area.
The identity of the suspect is not known at this time. Anyone with information as to the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the Redding Police Department Investigations Division.
