SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A traffic stop in Mission Valley early Wednesday sparked an investigation into a stabbing at Mission Beach.

Officers stopped a speeding BMW with a wounded man inside on the transition from eastbound Interstate 8 to northbound Interstate 805 shortly
before 2 a.m.

Someone inside the car told authorities they were en route to a hospital, San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros said.

Delimitros said the victim was stabbed in the stomach with a broken bottle in the vicinity of the roller coaster at Belmont Park. However, it was not immediately clear exactly where and when the attack took place.
