Officers shut down a major thoroughfare in Normal Heights Sunday to investigate a stabbing.

SAN DIEGO — Police shut down a stretch of westbound Adams Avenue in Normal Heights after a woman allegedly stabbed an ex-boyfriend during an argument.

Officers responded to reports of a domestic violence incident near 36th Street shortly after 2 p.m.

Officers arrived to find a man who had been stabbed in the leg, apparently after an argument inside a nearby home, Sgt. Edward Laurendeau confirmed. The woman was arrested and the man was taken to a hospital in stable condition, the sergeant said. Both were in their mid-30’s.

Police blocked off a bloody portion of sidewalk outside the home, and Laurendeau said that a car sitting in a nearby driveway with damage to its windshield was also part of the investigation. He referred to the Mazda as a “possible getaway car” that the woman apparently used to leave the scene and later returned in.

Investigators were interviewing multiple witnesses, as the stabbing occurred on a Sunday afternoon along bustling Adams Avenue. Westbound lanes on Adams were closed to traffic at the start of the investigation, but reopened a short time later.
