BARSTOW– Authorities are seeking the whereabouts of two suspects who stabbed a male victim multiple times causing severe injuries.

On October 2, 2018, at around 9:11 p.m. officers from the Barstow Police Department responded to several reports that a man had been stabbed by two unknown suspects. When officers arrived to the mobile home park that was located in the 1500 block of West Main Street they found the male suffering from multiple stab wounds. Barstow Fire Protection District Paramedics responded to the location to provide medical aid to the victim. The victim was airlifted due to the severity of his injuries.

Several witnesses were interviewed by detectives. Detectives learned that the victim and two Hispanic male adult suspects were involved in a verbal altercation. During the altercation, the male suspects stabbed the victim multiple times and fled in a tan SUV. The suspects were identified as Jessie Quezada and Joe Astorga. The two suspects have not been able to be located at this time.

Jessie Quezada, 32, of Barstow, is around 5’8” tall, and weighs 200 pounds. He has a tattoo of “STV” on his neck. Joe Astorga, 37, of Barstow, is around 5’5” and 170 pounds. He has a tattoo saying, “Baby Cakes” on his neck.

Detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for Jessie Quezada for the charge of PC 664/187 – Attempted Murder. Detectives are still completing the warrant request for Astorga.
