Naked stabbing victim found on sidewalk
The victim was found bleeding from at least one stab wound to the chest on the Adams Avenue bridge over Interstate 805 at around 10:30 p.m. on Thursday, according to San Diego Police Department Lt. Eric Hays.
“He’s got one stab wound, a fractured orbital bone, broken jaw, road rash, rib fractures and a broken wrist,” said Hays.
When police arrived, an off-duty lifeguard was giving the man CPR. He was taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.
Detectives told Fox 5 they got a call Friday from a man who believes the victim is his roommate.
“The roommate called us and said the door was wide open when he returned home — saw some blood inside and a knife on the floor,” said Hays.
According to police, the victim was in a drug-induced coma, but expected to survive. The victim’s name has not been released.
