SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 25-year-old man was cut by an unruly man swinging a 12 inch knife Saturday, while he tried to break up a fight at a College-area party, police said.
The fight broke out at a small gathering in the 2400 block of 56th Street, near El Cajon Boulevard, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.
The suspect was reportedly causing problems with some women at the party when other partygoers tried to physically force him to leave, Stafford said.
The suspect started wrestling with two men, and several bystanders grabbed the suspect to stop the fight.
The suspect took out a 12 inch fixed-blade knife and swung it around, cutting one 25-year-old partygoer on his thumb, Stafford said. The victim was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The suspect, whose name was not released, was arrested for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
