SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 36-year-old man was in custody Monday on suspicion of stabbing a cab driver in the shoulder with a kitchen knife after following him into a restaurant in Chollas Creek, police said.
The stabbing in the 5200 block of University Ave. was reported at 11:46 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.
The victim, also a 36-year-old man, told investigators that he was approached by the suspect, who asked for a cigarette, Stafford said in a statement.
The victim said he didn't smoke, then went into the Taste of Africa restaurant and the suspect followed, Stafford said.
After he was stabbed, the victim tackled the suspect and held him down until officers arrived. The suspect was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Stafford said.
His name was not immediately released.
Medics took the cab driver to an area hospital to treat a non-life threatening stab wound, Stafford said. The motive for the assault was not immediately determined.
