A man who was stabbed Monday night in downtown Redding has died, police said Tuesday morning.
«The victim was transported to a local area hospital where he succumbed to his injures,» the Redding Police Department said in a Facebook post.
Police have still not found the person who they believe stabbed the man, investigators said.
The stabbing was reported just before 10 p.m. at the Taco Bell on Market Street.
Shasta County Secret Witness said the victim was a Taco Bell employee and is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information in the case.
When officers arrived on scene, they found a person suffering from stab wounds, police said. The person, who was not identified, was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
Shasta County Secret Witness said the employee was outside on his break when he was confronted by the suspect and then was stabbed multiple times.
The suspect left before officers arrived.
Witnesses described the person as a 50-year-old white man, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing between 150 and 170 pounds, police said.
He was wearing a dark-hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, dark shoes and had an unshaven face, police said.
