SAN DIEGO (CNS) -An 18-year-old man was hospitalized with a non-life threatening head wound he suffered after an apparent gang attack in Linda Vista, police said Saturday.
The victim and three other men were walking eastbound on Westinghouse Street about 7 p.m. Friday when a group of five suspects walked up to them and delivered a gang challenge, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.
The victims told the suspects they were not gang members but the five suspects began attacking them anyway, Stafford said.
The unidentified victim suffered a small laceration to his head and was taken to a trauma center, Stafford said.
He told officers he was either struck by brass knuckles or stabbed with a knife that one of the suspects had displayed.
The suspects fled the scene on foot, Stafford said.
No suspect descriptions were immediately available, Stafford said.
