Officers with the Anderson Police Department and other emergency personnel were dispatched to the Valero gas station in the 2100 block of North Street just after 6 p.m., after receiving reports of a stabbing that had just occurred, Anderson PD officials later explained.

When officers arrived they located a man who had been stabbed several times. They also quickly located and detained the suspect, who was still at the scene.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment and was listed as being in stable condition as of last night.

The suspect, since identified as Corey Legene Perron, 58, of Anderson, was later booked into the Shasta County Jail in Redding on suspicion of attempted murder and consuming alcohol in public.
