SAN DIEGO — A 60-year-old woman was stabbed with a kitchen knife after engaging in an argument in Valencia Park early Sunday morning, said police.

Police say a 58-year-old woman confronted a 60-year-woman for smoking near a leaking propane tank in a parking lot in the 5100 block of Imperial Avenue around 4 a.m.

The two women began arguing, and the altercation turned physical when one woman challenged the other to a fight.
