A man was carjacked and stabbed in San Diego’s Stockton neighborhood after a suspect dove into his car through an open window.

According to police, the violent carjacking happened around 8:45 p.m. in the 3300 block of Imperial Avenue.

Police said a 32-year-old male victim was driving his burgundy Chevy pickup truck with his windows down. Suddenly, a Hispanic male suspect in his 20s with an afro hairstyle dove into the cab of the vehicle through an open window.

The suspect stabbed the driver in the arm and face. Meanwhile, a second Hispanic male suspect in his 20s, wearing a white and blue windbreaker, opened the driver’s door.

The driver was forced out of the truck.

The first suspect who dove in then slid over to the driver’s seat and drove away. Police said the second suspect eventually caught up to the truck, hopped in and the two men fled the scene.

The carjacking victim sustained non-life threatening stab wounds to his arm and face, but is expected to recover.

Robbery detectives are investigating the incident and searching for the suspects.
