Police search for suspect in road rage stabbing

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police were on the lookout Wednesday for a young man accused of getting out of his vehicle and using a steak knife to cut another man's neck during a road rage incident in University Heights.

The stabbing near Park Boulevard and University Avenue was reported just before 7 p.m. Tuesday, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

A 22-year-old man driving a Volkswagen GTI told investigators he and another man in his 20s driving a blue Chevy sedan were both headed northbound on Park Boulevard when the incident occurred, Delimitros said in a statement.

When they both pulled up to a red light at University Avenue, the Chevy driver got out of his vehicle and approached the man in the Volkswagen, stabbing him in the neck with the steak knife, Delimitros said. The Chevy driver then allegedly got back into his vehicle and drove off.

The stab wound was not life-threatening, according to Delimitros.

Police did not disclose what actually triggered the Chevy driver's attack.
