The victim, who is a 25-year-old Sparks resident, told officers that he was walking in the area of the 300 block of D St. when a small red passenger car pulled up near him. The occupants of the car asked the victim if he had any gang affiliation, and the victim denied any gang involvement. The victim then said he was attacked by the four people in the car, who were described as Hispanic. He was unable to provide any further description of the suspects.
The vehicle is only described as a small, red passenger car with some sort of after-market rims. The victim did receive non-life threatening injuries to one arm. The injuries appear to be consistent with a stabbing or slashing type of injury. REMSA and Sparks Fire personnel administered first-aid, and the victim declined to be taken to a hospital.
