SAN DIEGO — A 59-year-old man was stabbed seven times at Mission Bay Park on Halloween night, according to the San Diego Police Department.
The incident occurred shortly after 8 p.m. when a male and female reportedly approached the victim as he was standing beside a fire pit. The pair asked the man if he needed anything, police said.
After the victim told the couple he could use some water, the male suspect pulled out a knife and started stabbing the victim, SDPD Watch Commander John Buttle said in a news release.
Officials said the couple was last seen running from the area in the direction of Interstate 5. The male suspect was described as lanky, around 6 feet tall and was wearing a dark polo shirt. The female was described as petite and pregnant.
The victim was transported to a local hospital with multiple non-life threatening injuries, according to Buttle. The man suffered three stab wounds to his chest, three to the left back and one to the left triceps.
