Santa Barbara police are looking for a woman in connection with a stabbing at Leadbetter Beach on Sunday, Dec. 31.

At around 6 p.m. that day, police say a woman was stabbed several times in the torso and leg. She had reportedly been involved in an argument with another woman while eating and drinking at one of the picnic tables. Her attacker left the scene before officers arrived.

The victim was treated at a local hospital.

Police have since identified the suspect as Nichole Ann Ortiz, 36, of Santa Barbara. Investigators say she frequents the Milpas Corridor and may be living on the streets. Ortiz is described as 5'5" tall and 130 pounds with shoulder-length brown hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone who sees her is asked to call 911.
