Police in Fairfield County are searching for a man who allegedly stabbed another man to death overnight.

Bridgeport Police is asking the public for help locating Ricardo Garcia, age 41, of Bridgeport, who they say is responsible for the stabbing death of a man around 3:30 a.m., Tuesday, July 20 on Whitney Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found the victim, a 61-year-old man (name withheld until a notation is made to the family), dead from multiple stab wounds, said Scott Appleby, director of Emergency Management.

According to a witness, the victim was stabbed by Garcia, an alleged undocumented immigrant from El Salvador, who then fled the scene in a red 2010 Nissan Pathfinder, bearing Connecticut registration AW74910. 

"We are actively searching for Garcia for questioning," Appley said.
