San Diego police are searching for three suspects accused of attacking a 16-year-old girl on the streets of Mira Mesa, stabbing her in the face during the group assault.
According to investigators, the incident happened on April 28 at around 7 a.m., but details were released for the first time Friday.
Investigators said the teenage girl was standing in the driveway of a home near the intersection of Flanders Drive and Camino Santa Fe when two young men approached and allegedly attacked her. A female suspect then joined in on the assault.
During the attack, one of the male suspects cut the victim’s face several times with a knife.
Eventually, the group stopped and fled the scene in a black, four-door Infinity-style sedan.
Police said the suspects are possibly gang members, so the San Diego Police Department’s Street Gang Unit is heading the investigation on this case. The suspects threatened the victim prior to fleeing the scene and remain at large.
The two male suspects are both described by police as dark-skinned Filipino males, 16 to 18 years old, with slender builds. The female suspect is described as Asian, between 16 and 19 years old and light-skinned. She had blonde hair and a piercing in her lip.
Anyone with information on this incident should contact the SDPD’s Street Gang Unit at (619) 531-2847 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
