SAN DIEGO — A man selling a used car was stabbed in the neck in Chula Vista by a man who then stole the vehicle, police said Tuesday.

It happened around 10 p.m. Monday at an apartment complex on Moss Street between Third and Fourth avenues, according to Chula Vista police.

Some sort of dispute erupted during a sale, and the seller was stabbed in the neck before the assailant took off in the vehicle at the center of the dispute, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
