Stabbing suspect still wanted by police, victim stable

UPDATE: A juvenile suspect was arrested late Thursday, March 23rd.

ORIGINAL STORY:

The suspect in the stabbing assault of a Parker High School employee on Tuesday night is still not in custody and is wanted by police.

The victim, Maria Salcedo, was stabbed in the neck several times and was transported to La Paz Regional Hospital and then Lake Havasu Regional Hospital where she had surgery. As of this morning, she is in stable condition, according to Parker Police Department.

The suspect is described as being a white male, 5′ 10″, thin build with dark-colored hair and grey eyes. He is believed to be approximately 16 years old. He was wearing a dark-colored, short-sleeved Parker High School T-shirt and dark-colored shorts and shoes. A person matching the description given to law enforcement by the victim was seen on security camera leaving the high school through an open gate leading into the parking lot off 16th Street and Laguna Avenue.

Police reportedly spent time on Wednesday interviewing teachers about potential suspects while schools were closed to students.

The suspect is still unidentified and at large. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Parker Police Department at (928) 669-2264 or Central Dispatch at (928) 669-2281. Anyone with surveillance cameras in the area of Parker High School is also encouraged to get in touch.

    I don’t understand why they think he’s 16.. He’s pretty tall for his age. Such a shame that no one knows who he is with it being such a small town..

    Hopefully they will check the absentee list at school tomorrow and narrow it down and compose a photo line up of sorts for the victim to look thru to see if she recognizes her attacker. This is so awful 😔🙏🏼

    His hair cut looks like a barbershop cut. Unless that is a hat

    Why would they say a 16 year old white guy? This person in the picture I highly doubt is 16 and far from looking white. Just because he wore a Parker High School shirt does not mean he is a student. Come on . Now Parker P.D. is saying the person in the picture may not be the suspect, but he is a person of interest? WTF!

  24. That photo line up can also maybe be thru a year book???? Picking out the few that matched his description that way it doesn’t add any confusion. … ????

    I’m afraid to say this but I’m thinking maybe Parker, has a wanna-be serial killer on their hands . This is not the first time someone has been stabbed in Parker, always near the High School, that has not been caught.

  26. Jennafer Zatezalo

    There is a deeper issue lying in Parker. This woman who was stabbed, I’m thinking is just one of the many. And possibly more to come, if this continues.

    Aivy Pacheco Salcedo do you mind me asking her name??

  40. Why don’t they see who is absent tomorrow and identify his eye color and his hair? And maybe you might find out who it is.

  41. I don’t think our kids should
    Go back to school until he is caught. If he did this to an adult woman who’s to say he won’t go to school and hurt more kids

    This town is way too small for SOMEONE not to know this person or helped him get outta town! I always loved Parker because we pulled together as a community to stop unnecessary bs. Town..people of town need to pull it together now. I haven’t felt safe living in town for the last few years..so want to move. Never thought I’d feel this way! It sucks!
