OCEANSIDE, Calif. – A stabbing incident in Oceanside early Saturday critically injured a teenager, while two others escaped with less-serious injuries.

At 1:18 a.m., police responded to a radio call of a stabbing in the 400 block of San Luis Rey Drive, according to Lt. George Darrah of the Oceanside Police Department. Responding officers found three victims — two 17-year-old boys and an 18-year-old man.
