SAN JOSE -- A San Jose resident who died Thursday night after he was beaten and stabbed by four or five attackers was identified as 44-year-old Donald Harvey, police said Sunday.

Police say officers found Harvey wounded and on the ground in front of a "residence" on the 100 block of Southside Drive last week.

However, it wasn't clear exactly where Harvey was attacked. The spot where he had fallen when police arrived was a grassy island in the driveway of the large, Crosspointe apartment complex at Southside Drive and Hope Street in southeast San Jose. The manager of the complex could not be reached for comment, but police said they do not think Harvey lived there.

Though he was rushed to the hospital, Harvey was pronounced dead at 9:30 p.m., said San Jose police Sgt. Jason Dwyer.

Police haven't made any arrests and don't have any suspects. It appears four to five assailants attacked the victim, and at least one stabbed him multiple times, police said.

Investigators haven't uncovered any evidence the crime is related to street gangs.

People with information about the killing can call San Jose's homicide unit at 408-277-5283.
