SANTEE (CNS) - One person was in custody and three males were hospitalized Wednesday after a brawl involving baseball bats, brass knuckles and knives broke out in the Santee area, authorities said.
Deputies received a report of a stabbing in the area of 9600 Marilla Drive just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. David Hale. Once there, deputies found a teenage boy with a knife lodged in his skull above his right ear, the sergeant said in a statement.
Witnesses told deputies that around five males armed with baseball bats, brass knuckles and knives had been in a fight in the area of Ryder Road. Hale said deputies then found two more injured males in the area.
The boy with the knife in his skull was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted for observation after the knife was taken out, according to Hale.
Another male was taken to Grossmont Hospital and listed in stable condition with multiple broken bones and internal injuries, Hale said, noting he was struck by baseball bats.
A third male was also taken to Grossmont Hospital but later transferred to UCSD Medical Center, where he was admitted with non-life threatening stab wounds, according to Hale.
One person was arrested in connection with the fight, the sergeant without elaboration.
