LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two victims of an early morning stabbing remain in Lubbock hospitals with critical injuries and the suspect is still on the loose.

The scene of the crime is just off the corner of 42nd and Chicago. All seemed quiet on this west Lubbock street but around 3:30 Friday morning it was a different story.

Chilling 911 tapes piece together what happened.

911: "911 what's your emergency?"

Caller: "I've been stabbed."

911: "Who stabbed you?"

Caller: "My boyfriend Robert Mata."

Emergency responders spent about six minutes on the phone with 42-year-old Susan Perez. She went on to say that she had been stabbed many times.  

Police are searching for Robert Joe Mata who they say stabbed Perez and a second victim 33-year-old Jacob Mojica with a knife. Both victims suffered multiple stab wounds.  

According to the arrest warrant, when officers arrived on the scene they found Mojica on the corner of Chicago and 42nd bleeding from multiple stab wounds and wearing only socks.

Police say he left the house where the stabbings happened and ran to neighbors, leaving a trail of blood in his search for help. "It's still under investigation. We have to wait to be able to talk to the victims. Basically only a few people there two of which are in the hospital and we can't find the other one yet," said Lt. Neal Barron with the Lubbock Police Department.

Susan Perez is listed in critical condition at Covenant Medical Center and Jacob Mojica is being treated for critical injuries at University Medical Center.

Police say Mata is a registered sex offender and is considered armed and dangerous. He faces an arrest warrant for the charge of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit aggravated assault. That is a first degree felony, so if found guilty Mata could face five to 99 years or life in prison. If arrested he also would face a half million dollars bond.

Mata, was last seen driving a green Buick LeSabre.  He may have been heading to Brownfield. Anyone with knowledge about the stabbing or Mata's whereabouts are asked to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
