Unidentified Stabbing Victim, Bayou Body Count No. 155

A man was stabbed to death in an apparent robbery attempt on the west side shortly after midnight Sunday, Houston police say.

HPD responded Sunday to a "man down" call about 12:10 a.m. at the 8600 block of Beechnut near South Gessner.

The victim was found suffering from several stab wounds and was transported to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital, where he died. His identity has not been released pending verification from the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

Witnesses told investigators that "unknown suspects" tried to rob the victim, HPD says.

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.
