The Santa Barbara Police Department is investigating a stabbing in downtown Santa Barbara that occurred on Wednesday just before 12:30 p.m. (Warning: GRAPHIC)
Early reports indicate that a dispute between the two men began at the intersection of State and Figueroa streets and moved west. One of the men allegedly took the other's sunglasses off and threw them on the rooftop of a nearby building. That's when the stabbing occurred. The suspect then threw the knife on the rooftop of the building and left the scene.
Santa Barbara City Firefighters assisted SBPD with a ladder truck to comb through the building's rooftop for evidence. Investigators came down from the rooftop with an evidence bag. Some articles of clothing from the victim were also found.
