SAN DIEGO – A war of words on social media turned to actual violence in southeast San Diego when two women met in person following an online argument and one stabbed the other six times, police said Friday.
After arguing on the unidentified social media site, the 21-year-old victim and the suspect, 19-year-old Jaquela Keoni Jacquess, met up about 10:30 p.m. Thursday in the 1000 block of South 36th Street, near Emerson-Bandini Elementary School in the Southcrest neighborhood, San Diego police Officer Robert Heims said.
“(They) got into a physical fight,” Heims said. “During the fight the victim was stabbed multiple times.”
The victim, whose name was not released, flagged down a patrol officer for help a few blocks from the scene, Lt. Michael Swanson said. Paramedics responded and took her to a hospital where she was treated for five stab wounds to the back and one to the abdomen. Those injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
Police detained Jacquess and an unidentified man a short time later, but only Jacquess was arrested, Heims said.
Jail records show Jacquess was booked into the Las Colinas Detention Center in Santee about 4:15 a.m. on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor battery. She was being held on $30,000 bail.
