SAN DIEGO (CNS) - What started out as horseplay in Mission Bay Park escalated into a brawl between several men, one who ended up with multiple stab wounds, a police officer said Sunday.
The men were "play fighting" on Fiesta Island about 10:45 p.m. Saturday when their hijinks turned violent, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.
During the altercation that ensued, a man in his mid-20s stabbed a 29-year-old man in his back, buttocks and arm, Stafford said.
The wounded man was taken to a hospital to be treated, Stafford said. His injuries were not considered by police to be life-threatening.
Stafford said the suspected assailant was known to police, but it was unclear if an arrest was made.
