SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An argument over a stolen radio part Saturday led a 27-year-old woman to allegedly bash a male friend over the head with a chunk of concrete, San Diego police said.
The woman accused her 30-year-old male friend of stealing the radio part about 6:15 a.m. in the vicinity of 17th and G streets, according to San Diego police officer Frank Cali.
When the man bent down, the woman allegedly picked up a chunk of concrete and hit him in the back of the head, Cali said.
He flagged down officers about a block away who confirmed a large rock as the weapon and contacted the woman, identified as Shina Balentine, and arrested her for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Cali said.
The victim was taken to a hospital to be treated for a laceration on the back of his head that police did not believe was life-threatening, Cali said.
