Man stabbed near SDSU accuses group in clown costumes

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man hospitalized for stab wounds who told police he was attacked by four people in clown costumes near San Diego State University was not cooperating with the investigation, according to police.
   
Officers responded to the victim at a hospital who told them the incident occurred at about 9 p.m. Friday in the College Area, but police did not disclose the exact location.
   
The victim told police he was riding his skateboard when he got into an argument with someone across the street, according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.
   
The victim said he started to skateboard away when four people in clown costumes attacked him.
   
The victim had a deep laceration to his left cheek and the back of his right shoulder and two stab wounds to his lower abdomen, Heims said, adding that his injuries were not life-threatening.
   
The victim became uncooperative when officers learned that he had a warrant out for his arrest and that he was carrying a pellet gun, according to Officer Tony Martinez.
   
The victim refused to provide details of the alleged attack, bringing into question the veracity of his story, Martinez said, adding that it was the hospital that contacted police, not the victim.

Anyone with information related to the incident was asked to call San Diego police or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
