SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 42-year-old homeless woman was stabbed six times in Mission Valley early Friday but was expected to survive, police said.
The woman walked into the Denny's parking lot at 7676 Friars Road around 1:15 a.m. and asked for help, said San Diego police Officer David Stafford.
She was taken to a local trauma center, where her wounds - including a punctured lung - were determined to be not life-threatening, he said.
The victim was stabbed two times in the chest, two times in the back and two times in the head, Stafford said.
Police described her attacker as a 20-something white man last seen wearing a dark hoodie and blue jeans.
No other details were immediately available because the woman was being uncooperative with investigators, according to Stafford.
