SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 23-year-old man was stabbed in the neck by one of two men who approached him near Horton Plaza, and officers Saturday were on the lookout for the assailants, San Diego police said.
The victim was walking near the Westfield Horton Plaza Mall near the intersection of Broadway and Fourth Avenue shortly after midnight Friday when he was approached by the two suspects, according to San Diego police Sgt. David E. Jennings.
The three men began talking and for unknown reasons one of the suspects pulled a knife and stabbed the victim in the neck, Jennings said.
The victim took a taxi to a hospital where he was treated for his wounds, which police did not believe were life-threatening, Jennings said.
