Authorities are searching for two suspects who, "stabbed a Los Angeles City College student and stole his laptop computer as he walked to class," reports KTLA.

The two men escaped on foot stealing his backpack and laptop. Were they jaywalkers?! The student received treatment at Presbyterian Medical Center and stitches in his left hand. Sheriff's Sgt. Harry Van is asking anyone with information to call (323) 371-0689.
