Hayward police are looking for a sanity-estranged man, accused of domestic abuse, who slashed his throat during a confrontation with officers. Jose Salias Hernandez, according to Oakland Tribune, "\was confronted by police Saturday in the ex-girlfriend's driveway at Valle Vista Avenue. During negotiations, he cut his throat with a large kitchen knife, then plunged it into his chest."
After being held at John George Psychiatric Pavilion in San Leandro for evaluation, "he was inadvertently released Sunday night rather than being returned to custody." He caught a cab to Union City. No one has heard from him since.
The suspect, a danger to others and himself, is described as 32 years old, 5 feet, 8 inches, short black hair, wound to the throat. If you see him, please call 911 or Hayward police at 510-293-7000.
