SAN LEANDRO -- A 15-year-old girl died from multiple stab wounds Friday evening and police are asking the public for help in finding her assailant.
Police said Henry Leon, 19, of Oakland, is the primary suspect in the homicide that occurred in the 1900 block of Pacific Avenue, near Castro Street.
Leon is driving a dark blue 2004 Cadillac Escalade with black rims and a California license plate number of 5SBE608, Lt. Jeff Tudor said.
Leon was involved in a relationship with the victim and is the father of their 9-month-old baby, Tudor said.
Officers responded to a 6:21 p.m. report of the attack and found the girl on Pacific Avenue with multiple stab wounds in her torso, authorities said.
Police said an officer performed CPR on the girl until the arrival of paramedics, who continued performing life-saving measures until she died from her injuries.
The victim is not being named because her family has not been notified.
It was San Leandro's first homicide of 2012.
Anyone with information about the homicide or Leon's whereabouts can call police at 510-577-3237 or the anonymous hotline at 510-577-3278.
