Corpus Christi police are seeking an attacker after a teenager was stabbed 26 times. Capt. Todd Green on Monday said the 17-year-old victim suffered non-life threatening wounds.

Green told The Associated Press that John Hernandez of Corpus Christi was discovered when someone passing by "heard what he thought was a cat crying in the bushes."

Green says the victim, who was found early Saturday outside a residence, was unable to tell officers who stabbed him or where it happened.

Green says Hernandez had 25 stab wounds to the front, torso, abdomen and chest area, plus one back wound.

Green says Hernandez was transported to a hospital. A spokeswoman for Christus Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi-Memorial, Sherry Carr-Smith, told AP that she had no record Monday of anyone with the victim's name.
