SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 36-year-old man was punched and stabbed by two teenage boys attempting to steal his wallet in Normal Heights, but he managed to fight off the pair, police said Thursday.
The assailants approached the victim from behind in an alley in the vicinity of Bancroft Street and Madison Avenue around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, San Diego police Sgt. Brad O'Donnell said. One of the teens punched the man in the back of his head while the other demanded his wallet, he said.
A fight ensued in which the suspects stabbed the victim in his abdomen and slashed his shin with a knife, although the victim did ultimately fight off his attackers, the sergeant said. The suspects then ran off.
O'Donnell said the victim refused to provide police with further information about the suspects.
The man was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries, which O'Donnell said were not life-threatening, but would require surgery.
