SAN DIEGO – An argument between two residents at an independent living facility escalated into a stabbing Sunday morning in the Mountain View neighborhood of San Diego, according to police.
Officers responded at about 9:15 a.m. to the 4100 block of Jamul Avenue, where two men were arguing over money and food, according to Sgt. Tom Sullivan.
“One subject, a 56-year-old male, turned his back and was struck with a rock by a 59-year-old male,” Sullivan said. “The victim then picked up the rock to retaliate. The suspect armed himself with a knife and stabbed the victim in the left forearm.”
The suspect fled the home, but the victim knows who attacked him, Sullivan said.
The victim suffered a one-inch laceration. His identity was not released.
