BAKERSFIELD, Califf. — The Kern County Sheriff's Office is working to track down a man and woman wanted for stabbing and hit and run incident.

According to KCSO around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday, deputies were dispatched to McCray Park for reports of 10 people in a peace disturbance. When deputies arrived, they found a man with a stab wound.

Officials said through their investigation they determined a man and woman drove up to McCray park. The man, who was in the passenger seat, got out of the vehicle and stabbed an 18-year-old man in the leg. The suspect then got back into the passenger seat as a woman started to drive them away. KCSO said the woman then hit the man who was stabbed and an 18-year-old woman with the vehicle.

The man and woman who were injured were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and, as of 8 p.m. Tuesday, officials did not believe their injuries were life-threatening.

KCSO said a short time later they found the suspect vehicle in the 500 block of McCray St. and deputies were processing the vehicle for evidence.

Investigators have not released any names of potential suspects, but say they are looking for a Hispanic man, in his 20s, 5'8'' tall, and weighs around 210 pounds. They're also looking for a white or Hispanic woman, in her 20s, 5'6'' tall and weighs around 100 pounds.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Kern County Sheriff's Office at 861-3110.
