PLACENTIA (CBS) — Placentia police were investigating the fatal stabbing of a 53-year-old homeless man Wednesday.

Police were called to a shopping center in the 100 block of north Bradford Avenue about 8:30 a.m. after someone found the man’s body, Placentia police Lt. Eric Point said. The victim was stabbed multiple times, Point said.

Police were not releasing the man’s name because investigators were still trying to track down his family and because of the ongoing investigation, Point said.

The man was a known transient to officers, Point said.
