A 22-year-old man was punched, kicked and stabbed four times Monday evening in the parking lot of a public library in Linda Vista, the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) confirmed.
According to investigators, the victim was walking with a friend in the 2100 block of Ulric Street near Linda Vista Library just after 6 p.m. when they were approached by three men.
Police said the men and the victim began arguing and the confrontation turned violent. The victim was beaten and stabbed several times. His friend was not injured in the attack.
The suspects then got into a green- four-door Honda Accord with chrome rims and fled the scene in a northbound direction.
The description of the suspects is limited but police said two of the men were described as bald. One was wearing a tank top and shorts while the other wore a white T-shirt and shorts. The investigation is ongoing, with police trying to determine if the incident is gang-related.
