SAN DIEGO — A homeless man was stabbed in the neck in Barrio Logan early Thursday during a fight with another transient over a stolen dog.
The 50-year-old victim began arguing with a drunken 60-year-old man outside a tent in an encampment along Newton Avenue near 16th Street at around 12:15 a.m., San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros said. At some point during the altercation, the suspect pulled a knife and stabbed the victim.
Delimitros said the victim’s injuries were not considered life-threatening.
Police described the suspect as a 5-foot-4, heavyset white man wearing a black baseball cap and blue jeans. He was last seen riding away on a bicycle.
