Man slashed after offending condo rules against glass

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man was so upset that another man was drinking out of a glass bottle at a condo's swimming pool that he grabbed a bottle from the victim's cooler, conked the offending party on the head, and then slashed the offending party's back with a fresh shard, police said Sunday.

The confrontation unfolded in a condo complex's recreation area at about 6:45 p.m. Saturday at 645 Front St., San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.

A man in his 40s reportedly confronted a man in his mid 20s over violating condo rules against glass bottles in the pool area.

The suspect allegedly snatched a bottle from the victim's cooler and smacked the younger man over his head, shattering the container, Stafford said. The suspect then used a broken piece of glass to cut the younger man numerous times on his back, the officer said.

The victim was taken to a hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Police later arrested the suspect at his residence, Stafford said.

Police did not release his name.
