PLEASANTON (CBS SF) — Police have identified Jesse Serpa, 33, of Livermore as a suspect in connection with the stabbing of a Livermore man at a Pleasanton apartment complex Wednesday night.

At 9 p.m. on Wednesday police dispatchers received a report of a stabbing at 3819 Vineyard Avenue in Pleasanton.
