SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Police Department was investigating multiple stabbings reported in North Park Friday morning.

Two stabbing victims were discovered around 8:14 a.m. on 30th Street and Howard Avenue in the North Park area, according to police.

A 25-year-old man was stabbed in the leg with a knife while walking along the 4200 block of Ohio Street, Sgt. Edward Zwibel said.

While fleeing the scene, the attacker tried to force a 57-year-old man out of his car in a Vons parking lot close to the intersection of Howard Avenue and 30th Street, about a block away from the first stabbing. The attacker stabbed the second victim three or four times in the arm before running from the area on foot, Zwibel said.

Both victims were taken to a hospital. Their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

The attacker was described as a white man with a thin build who was about 5'10" tall. Police said the man, who was guessed to be about 30 years old, might be homeless. He was last seen wearing a gray shirt.

Anyone with information on the attacker's whereabouts was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
