    San Jose police on Sunday say a female suspect is at large after a man was found stabbed and later pronounced dead.

    Officers responded to the 700 block of South Second Street just before 10 a.m. and found the man suffering from at least one stab wound, police said. He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    The female suspect has yet to be located, police said.

    A motive and further details regarding the stabbing have yet to be released. The information at this time is preliminary and could change, police said.

    Neighbors say they are not surprised to learn about the slaying. They say it's an area that has seen plenty of crime.

    "Break-ins, robberies. You don't walk around here at night because it is very dangerous," resident Jose Reynoso said.

    One neighbor told NBC Bay Area a very angry woman last week threw something through the front window of the home where the stabbing took place Sunday.

    Also last week, just a few blocks away, a man shot and killed a woman inside a home. And in late February, outside a bar on Second Street, youth sports coach Frank Navarro was stabbed to death. 

    The identity of the male victim Sunday will not be released until his next of kin are notified.

    The San Jose Police Department Homicide Unit has launched an investigation, according to police. It is the city's 16th homicide this year.
