A 38-year-old man is wanted for a stabbing in the Leonidas neighborhood.

Police are searching for 38-year-old Eddie Beraud. Officers have named Beraud as a suspect in a Sunday morning stabbing in the 8800 block of Spruce Street.

Police said Beraud was drinking with the 40-year-old victim when the two became involved in a verbal altercation. As the altercation escalated, police say the victim pushed Beraud.

The suspect allegedly grabbed two knives from the kitchen and stabbed the victim twice before fleeing the scene, police say.

The victim's friend drove him to the hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. The victim told officers that he and Beraud were acquaintances.

Once apprehended, Beraud will be booked with one count of aggravated battery.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
