Wasco man sought in stabbing

Kern County Sheriff's deputies from the Wasco substation are asking for the public's assistance in locating a suspect in a recent stabbing.

Since the incident on Oct. 21, deputies working at the substation have been looking for Juan-Manuel Diaz. Diaz allegedly stabbed a female victim several times.

Maria Diaz and Antonio Diaz from Wasco were already arrested in this incident.

Juan-Manuel Diaz is described as a 21-24-year-old Hispanic male with brown eyes and black hair at 5-feet-5 and weighing 125 pounds.

"This was not a random stabbing," Sergeant Peter Martinez said. "The three are related."

If anyone has information on Juan-Manuel Diaz' whereabouts, they are asked to contact the Kern County Sheriff's Office at 661-861-3110 or the Secret Witness Hotline at 661-322-4040.
