Escondido High School

ESCONDIDO, Calif. — A knife assault near Escondido High School left a 17- year-old student wounded this afternoon and prompted a roughly 15-minute lockdown at the campus while authorities searched for the assailant.

The stabbing in the 1600 block of North Broadway was reported shortly before 1 p.m., according to police.

Medics took the victim to a hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening arm injury, Lt. Al Owens said.

The attacker, who remained at large in the mid-afternoon, was described as a Latino who appeared to be in his 20s. He reportedly fled to the north in an older-model sedan.

The motive for the assault was unknown, the lieutenant said.
