And now, for a dramatic morning dose of the macabre, we present too you a story about a man accused of attacking a colleague with a meat cleaver in Palo Alto. Happening at "fine Shanghai cuisine" restaurant Jade Palace on California Avenue a little after 7 p.m. last night, the fuzz "found an Asian man in his late 40s or early 50s in the kitchen area with three to four stab wounds to the face and torso from a cleaver," after reporting to the scene. According to Mercury News, the victim was simply drenched in blood. "It was all over the place. It was all over his back," said Richard Reyes, owners of nearby business. "You could see some of his muscles hanging out."
The male victim is listed in critical condition.
Anyway, the suspect, "who may go by the name Michael Chen, Chen Chun or Chun Chen," scrammed right after the attack. Described as about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 150 pounds and Asian-ish, the police aren't "quite sure A) who he is and B) what city he hails from," said Agent Dan Ryan. Many of the witnesses, it seems, were Mandarin-speaking, so officers have to wait to find translators who speak the language.
If you have information on Chen Chun or Chun Chen, please call Palo Alto police immediately at 650-329-2413.
