A man was stabbed to death outside a Telephone Road business about 1:30 this morning, police say.
The 48-year-old victim, whose identity has not been released pending notification of his family, was seen being beaten by an eyewitness near the South Loop and I-45.
"When the witness began honking his horn, the suspect fled the scene on foot," HPD says. "When officers arrived, they found the victim had suffered multiple stab wounds and was pronounced dead."
There's not much to go on: "The suspect is described only as a Hispanic male, 20 to 30 years of age, five feet, six inches tall and approximately 130 pounds," police say. "He was wearing a dark blue or black t-shirt and blue jeans."
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
