SAN DIEGO — An argument between two friends heading to a UFC viewing event led one to one stab the other, police said Sunday.

A 55-year-old man and a 43-year-old man were en route to a restaurant near Drive at Rosecrans Street at about 9 p.m. Saturday when they began to have a disagreement. As they arrived at their destination, the argument became more heated, San Diego police Sgt. Michael Tansey said.

The younger man grabbed the older one and stabbed him once in the front of his neck, Tansey said. The victim was able to walk away and was later taken to a hospital. His injury was not considered to be life-threatening.

The suspect, identified as Paul McNett of San Diego, stayed at the restaurant to watch Saturday night’s UFC event, but was later arrested and taken to jail, Tansey said.
