2 men stabbed in fight with bike thieves
SAN DIEGO — Two men were stabbed in City Heights while trying to get a third man’s stolen bicycle back, police said Tuesday.
The man whose bicycle was taken told his 24-year-old brother and a 19- year-old friend he was robbed by a group of four to six men Monday evening, according to San Diego police Officer Robert Heims. The brother and friend then set out to get the bicycle back.
They came upon a group of four to six men in the vicinity of Fairmount Avenue and Redwood Street shortly after 8 p.m. Monday and a physical altercation ensued, Heims said. At some point, the brother and the friend were each stabbed in the back, he said.
Both victims were taken to a hospital to be treated for non-life- threatening wounds, according to the officer.
It was not immediately clear whether the bicycle was returned.
