SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 34-year-old man was arrested Saturday for allegedly stabbing a man in his head and attempting to rob a pharmacy of drugs, San Diego police said.
The suspect, identified by police as Gene Stewart, allegedly used a pocket knife to gain entry to an apartment at 3200 Rosecrans Street about 6:25 a.m., according to San Diego police Sgt. Ray Battrick.
Once inside, he argued with two men and a woman then allegedly stabbed a 50-year-old man in the left side of his head, Battrick said. The victim was later taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, Battrick said.
The suspect left the apartment and was spotted at a nearby Walgreens pharmacy, at 3005 Midway Drive. There, he ran inside and demanded drugs from an employee, Battrick said.
Stewart was arrested inside the store for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and attempted robbery, Battrick said.
