COSTA MESA, Calif. (KABC) --A stabbing victim covered in blood and left for dead at a Motel 6 in Costa Mesa was caught on surveillance video wandering Monday morning.

Investigators spent hours at the hotel located on the 2400 block of Newport Boulevard.
Officials stated the victim and a woman had an argument at the hotel. After she left, police said a white Dodge Charger pulled up, a man got out, and got into a fight with the victim.
Investigators said the suspects, believed to be in their mid-20s, fled the scene in the Dodge.
"On the stair case, at the very top, I mean, it's just everywhere, you know, blood drenched towels everywhere," Awais Alzakwani, a hotel guest said.
