Man arrested accused of stabbing younger man for refusing sex

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8) - A 57-year-old man accused of stabbing a younger man who refused to have sex with him was arrested early Monday at the end of a two-hour police standoff in Park West, police said.

The two men were in the back of a pickup with a camper near Sixth and Quince streets about 10:40 p.m. Sunday when the incident began, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

The suspect demanded sex from a 28-year-old man, then stabbed the younger man in the chest with a knife when he refused, Stafford said.

The victim ran from the pickup and was found by officers a couple blocks away. Stafford said he was taken to a local trauma center to be treated for the chest wound, which was not life-threatening.

Officers went to the pickup and allegedly found the suspect nude and armed with a knife. He barricaded himself in the pickup and at one point, attempted to stab a police dog, Stafford said.

Police said during the standoff, the suspect touched himself in front of officers and acted strangely.

"He had a knife in his hand. He also apparently had a chest wound somewhere in the chest or upper abdominal area and he was threatening to hurt himself and was also demanding that officers kill him," Lt. David Rohowits of the San Diego police said.

Several low munitions were used to attempt to get the suspect out and after about two hours, he surrendered, Stafford said. 

The suspect, whose name was not immediately released, was taken to a local trauma center with a self-inflicted stab wound to the stomach, Stafford said. He was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
