SAN DIEGO — A father was hospitalized Saturday morning with stab wounds to his stomach suffered when he tried to break up a fight between his son and three of the boy’s friends in the Logan Heights section of San Diego.

The stabbing occurred just before midnight Friday at a home near 28th Street and Market Street, according to Officer Tony Martinez of the San Diego Police Department.

The victim’s 17-year-old son got into an argument with two males and a female that turned into a fight. As the boy’s father and two sisters attempted to break up the fight, the father was stabbed, Martinez said.

The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening wounds, Martinez said.

The boy’s friends left the area in a silver Hyundai, license plate number 6UMY315. The victim’s son refused to cooperate with police, Martinez said.

Anyone with information about the stabbing was asked to call Central Division detectives at 619-744-9500.
