A man was fatally assaulted at a residence in Highgrove, and the assailant was at large Monday.

The attack occurred Saturday night in the 100 block of Goldfinch Lane, near Murphy Avenue, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies were called to the location about 9:15 p.m. to investigate reports of a man down from an assault with a deadly weapon, Sgt. Richard Carroll said.

Deputies found the victim, whose name was not disclosed, “unconscious, suffering from life-threatening injuries,” Carroll said.

Carroll did not specify whether they were blunt force or stab wounds.

First responders attempted life-saving measures, but the man died at the scene, according to Carroll.

No information was provided regarding identification of a potential suspect or suspects, nor did Carroll mention a possible motive.

Anyone with information about the killing was asked to contact the sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit at 951-955-2777.
