SAN JOSE -- A man was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries early Friday morning after being stabbed downtown, one day after a homeless man was fatally stabbed just blocks away.
He was listed in critical but stable condition, according to authorities.
The stabbings, which do not appear to be connected, both occurred near Cesar Chavez Park, according to police Sgt. Heather Randol.
The man was stabbed in the 300 block of South Market Street, according to police.
The motive or circumstances surrounding the stabbing Friday is not known, though police said the suspect and victim knew each other, based on their preliminary investigation. The suspect has not been located and remains at large.
Early Thursday morning a homeless man was fatally stabbed across the street from Cesar Chavez Park, near Paseo de San Antonio and Market Street. It was the city's fifth homicide of 2013.
