Man wounded in stabbing at Encanto trailer park

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man who lives at an Encanto-area mobile home park found a seriously wounded stabbing victim Tuesday in a carport at the complex.

The resident was investigating unusual sounds at the trailer park in the 400 block of 63rd Street when he found the bleeding 28-year-old man crouched between two parked vehicles about 5:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The victim then tried to walk off, but collapsed a short distance away as patrol officers were arriving, SDPD Lt. Andra Brown said.

Medics took the man to Scripps Mercy Hospital, where he was treated for at least seven stab wounds to his left side, lower back and buttocks. He was expected to survive, though he lost his spleen to the attack.

The man, who was not immediately identified, was uncooperative with investigators. Due to blood evidence, police believe the assault occurred about a block from where the victim was found, Brown said.
