Man stabbed by beggar in Amarillo - suspect sought.

On 5-8-12, at 8:00 PM, officers were sent to a home in the 2200 block of SE 21st on a report of a stabbing victim there. Responding officers found a resident of a home there attempting to render first aid to the victim, Abel Delacruz Flores HM age 26 of Amarillo. Flores was still in his vehicle. He was suffering from stab wounds in his stomach, arm, and thigh. The victim was transported to the hospital by ambulance. At the hospital, he reported that he had been in his vehicle in the drive-up line at the Wendy’s at 2000 S. Ross when he was stabbed.

A Hispanic male he described as 5ft. 8, 140 pounds, bald, and clean shaven approached the open window on the driver’s side of the vehicle. The suspect asked him for spare change. The victim didn't have any but told the man that if he would wait until the meal was paid for, he would have change. The suspect stepped away. When the victim drove to the ordering area, the suspect approached the open passenger window again and stabbed him in the forearm. When the victim leaned over to get out of the suspect’s reach, the man stabbed him two more times.

 During this, a second Hispanic male about the same size as the first but wearing a black, derby style hat approached the right side of the car and tried to open the locked door. Flores feared he was being robbed and drove away into the nearby neighborhood. He did not know anyone at the address in SE 21st but said he knew people that lived in the area. Officers returned to the restaurant and obtained other details from a video and a witness. Officers believe that the two suspects had stepped out of what may have been a red four-door vehicle that pulled up beside the victim’s car before the stabbing.
