SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 20-year-old man was recuperating Wednesday after being stabbed in one of his hands and punched during an attempted robbery in Talmadge, police said.

The man was walking in the 5200 block of El Cajon Boulevard around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday when two other young men approached on foot, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

They demanded the victim's wallet and cell phone, and a fight ensued, Delimitros said.

Police described both would-be robbers as 18-20 years old. One was black and about 6 feet 3 inches tall with a thin build, Delimitros said, adding that the other was Hispanic, about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds.
