Police investigators on Tuesday released photos of a suspect believed to have been involved in a stabbing that wounded three people outside a Citrus Heights business.

The Citrus Heights Police Department released images of the unidentified attacker captured on a security camera. The images show a man in a red-hooded sweatshirt walking into what appears to be a convenience store.

The stabbing was reported about 4:30 a.m. Sunday outside the business in the 6100 block of Auburn Boulevard, just south of Greenback Lane.

On Sunday, police said investigators were looking for a male suspect, about 6 feet tall. He was believed to be accompanied by a female who wears glasses.
