SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two men were arrested early Friday after they woke up several transients on the streets of downtown San Diego in search of narcotics and began stabbing people when no drugs were found, police said.
Juan Prado, 28, and James Rivas, 59, walked around approaching sleeping transients in the area of Ninth Avenue and E Street around 3:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.
When no one had the narcotics the men were seeking, they began stabbing people, Officer David Stafford said in a statement.
One transient was stabbed in the head and arm, and another was stabbed in the back, he said, adding two others who tried to stop the attacks each received cuts to their hands.
None of the injuries were life-threatening, according to Stafford.
Prado and Rivas were arrested nearby a short time later on suspicion of assault with deadly weapons. It was not immediately clear whether they were also transients.
