Police in Concord are combing a neighborhood near the Loma Vista Adult Education Center for a suspect in the stabbing of a 19-year-old Bay Point man this morning.

At around 10:40 a.m., police responded to an attack at the center at 1266 San Carlos Ave. in which the victim, a student, suffered several cuts and stab wounds to his upper body, police said.

He was taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek where he underwent surgery, Lt. Steve Dyer said.

Dyer said that interviews with the victim and several witnesses revealed that the stabbing occurred during a physical fight sparked by "hard looks" between the victim and suspect, who is described as a Hispanic man about 18 or 19 years old with short hair and an average build.

The suspect was seen fleeing the campus in a green Honda sedan and was said to be wearing dark pants and a gray, hooded sweatshirt.
