SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A woman was stabbed in her neck when she refused to hand over her car keys to a man in the Bay Terraces neighborhood Saturday, and the suspect was arrested nearby, a police officer said.
The 40-year-old victim had parked her car in the vicinity of Paradise Valley Road and South Woodman Street shortly after 5:30 a.m. and stepped out when she was approached by the suspect, later identified as Jesse Gutierrez, 45, San Diego police Officer Frank Cali said.
Gutierrez allegedly demanded the woman hand over her keys. Upon her refusal, he stabbed her in the neck with a sharp object taped to a glove he wore, Cali said.
The suspected assailant then ran off to the west on Paradise Valley Road, according to the officer.
Police caught up to Gutierrez at the corner of Paradise Valley Road and Potomac Street, where he was taken into custody, Cali said.
The woman was taken to a hospital to be treated for her injuries, which police did not believe were life-threatening, Cali said.
