SAN DIEGO — An argument outside a Logan Heights liquor store turned violent when one man slashed another with a broken wine bottle, police said Monday.

The attack happened about 6:15 p.m. Sunday outside V&D Market on the corner of Ocean View Boulevard and Sampson Street, San Diego Police Sgt. Alan Karsh said. It began as a verbal confrontation between a 33-year-old man and another man in his 50s.
