PLEASANTON -- Police are searching for a Livermore man they believe to be the suspect in a stabbing at an apartment complex in Pleasanton on Wednesday.
Jesse Serpa, 33, is facing an attempted murder charge from the Alameda County District Attorney's Office after he was identified by the victim as the man responsible for stabbing him in the chest, police said Friday.
Witnesses told police that the two men were arguing and then began fighting at an apartment complex, located at 3819 Vineyard Ave. about 9 p.m. Wednesday. At some point during the fight, Serpa allegedly got hold of a knife and stabbed the victim once before fleeing on foot, police said.
The 30-year-old victim, also a Livermore resident, was taken to Eden Hospital for the treatment of his injury, which is non-life threatening.
There is a no-bail warrant currently for Serpa's arrest. Police are asking that anyone with information regarding this investigation or the location of Jesse Serpa to call the Pleasanton Police Department at 925-931-5100.
