The incident occurred near an apartment building early Aug. 28.


One man was stabbed and another man’s arm was slashed during a fight early Aug. 28 in the Midway District, police said.

The fight occurred at 2:07 a.m. in the parking lot of an apartment complex near the intersection of Wing and Kenyon streets, according to San Diego police Officer Tony Martinez.

Three Black men were confronted by two Hispanic men and a fight ensued, Martinez said. During the fight, one of the Black men was cut on a forearm with a knife and another Black man was stabbed. Both were treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, Martinez said.

At one point, investigators said, a suspect got into a vehicle and tried to run over the two wounded men but instead hit two parked vehicles before fleeing the scene. The stabbing victims were not hit by the vehicle.

A witness reported the vehicle description and license plate number to police, Martinez said.

The investigation by Western Division detectives is ongoing.
