    A man is hospitalized in critical condition after a stabbing aboard the San Diego Trolley late Thursday.

    San Diego Police Lt. Paul Rorrison said officers were looking for two suspects – a man and a woman – who got off an eastbound trolley at San Diego State University Thursday night.

    Officers say the male suspect stabbed another man in the upper chest. The fight began just after 11 p.m. and may have started because the suspect didn’t like the way the 22-year-old victim was looking at his girlfriend, officers said.

    A trail of blood can be seen on the sidewalk at the Rio Vista trolley stop in Mission Valley where the victim ran off the trolley.

    The man sought in the stabbing was wearing a baseball cap with tattoos on the back of his neck, officials said.
