A large trail of blood was visible on the road and leading up to a neighbor’s home.The bloody footprints turned to large pools of blood at the home’s stoop.

The homeowner, who didn’t want to be identified, said a neighbor showed up covered in blood begging for help. The neighbor said the victim was on his knees, and then rolled to his back, struggling to breathe. He said his neighbor said he’d been stabbed by a homeless person.

According to police, there was a fight between the victim and the person of interest in a field on the corner of Northeast 122nd Avenue and Northeast Siskiyou Street. Officers said they found evidence of the assault in the field.
