Victim left blood trail from scene to apartment

A suspect is being sought after a weekend fight in the apartments on the 300 block of Adams Street sent one man to the hospital.

Kern County Sheriff's Deputies were called to another apartment on the 300 block of Jefferson about 11:20 p.m., where they found the victim, who was not identified, suffering from cuts to his head and abdomen.

He was taken to a Bakersfield hospital for treatment.
The severity of his injuries was not available, but Sgt. Martin Downs said the victim was bleeding badly enough that deputies traced a blood trail from the apartment where the victim was found back to the Adams Street apartment where the fight occurred.
Witnesses told deputies they heard a loud fight and saw the injured victim.

The suspect is identified as Laureano Hernandez, 30.
