A scuffle involving three men on an East Village roadside escalated Monday into a stabbing that left one of them wounded, authorities reported.
The fracas near the intersection of 17th and Commercial streets began about 8 a.m. as an argument between a man and his ex-girlfriend, according to San Diego police.
As the pair bickered, two other men approached and intervened, with one punching and kicking the ex-boyfriend and the other whacking him the face with a pair of metal bicycle forks, Officer Dino Delimitros said.
After the victim fell to the ground, one of the assailants pulled a knife and stabbed him in the back and forearm, leaving him with wounds that were not considered life-threatening, Delimitros said.
The unidentified attackers — one described as about 6 feet 3 inches tall and muscular, the other as short and stocky — then fled.
