Canela, 46, had a half-inch stab wound on his stomach and told deputies he had just come from drinking all afternoon at a friend’s house on Grand Avenue. Canela said he headed home around midnight when he was stabbed.
He did not know where it happened, but described the suspect as a white man in his early 20’s who was carrying a backpack.
A search by deputies found no crime scene or suspect.
