Driver who stabbed pedestrian sought by police

SAN DIEGO — Detectives in the South Bay neighborhood of Nestor were searching Monday for a driver who jumped out of his car, stabbed a man and then sped away, police said.

Officers did not give a motive for the attack, which happened about 11:25 p.m. Sunday at Hollister Street and Grove Avenue near the Circle A Gasoline station in Nestor, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

After he was stabbed, the 21-year-old victim walked roughly a quarter mile to his home where he notified police of the attack, Buttle said. He told officers he was walking when the driver of a dark car sped toward him, stopped, got out and stabbed him and then jumped back in the car and drove away.

Paramedics took the victim to a hospital with injuries that were not expected to be life-threatening, Buttle said. Detectives were investigating the stabbing and searching for the suspect.
