SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego police Monday were on the lookout for a man in his 20s suspected of stabbing two men on a trolley in Chollas View.

The stabbings in the vicinity of 350 47th St. were reported at 9:13 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

The victims were in a group of four men who got into a verbal altercation with the lone suspect while on the trolley, he said in a statement. The argument escalated when the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed one man three times in the torso and once on the wrist, and another man in the chest, Delimitros said.

"We found one Hispanic 18-year-old male with a trail of blood walking eastbound on Market Street stabbed in the left chest area," said Lt. Paul Connelly with the San Diego Police Department.

A second victim - a white male - suffered cuts and scrapes to his face. He was found a short distance away at Euclid and Market Street.

Police were looking for a white man, around 25-years-old, with dark shoulder-length hair and a tattoo of a triangle under one eye. He was last seen getting off the trolley at the 47th Street stop, wearing a black shirt and black skinny jeans, Delimitros said.

Police say the stabbing victims sustained non-life threatening wounds and is expected to survive.
