“There was an assault with a deadly weapon and sheriff’s deputies are actively looking for the suspect,” said SCV Sheriff’s Station spokeswoman Shirley Miller.

Deputies also found a man who identified himself as a maintenance worker and said that the suspect, who struck him in the head with an unidentified metal object, was a transient man, according to Miller. 

The suspect was last seen exiting an apartment complex in the area and headed toward the wash near a homeless encampment. The weapon was not recovered at the scene where the incident occurred, according to law enforcement officials.  

The suspect remained outstanding Friday evening and the investigation continued, according to Miller.
