A man who was stabbed several times in the upper torso, including the neck, was pronounced dead after his arrival at UCSD Hospital and the woman suspected of stabbing him was taken into custody at the crime scene, a San Diego Police lieutenant said.
Officers responded to the stabbing at 4:43 p.m. Sunday in the 1800 block of Commercial Street, said San Diego Police Lt. Paul Rorrison.
“The male was unresponsive and not breathing. Officers performed life- saving measures until medics arrived and transported the victim to UCSD Hospital,” Rorrison said. “The victim succumbed to his wounds a short time later and was pronounced deceased.”
Officers arrested 52-year-old Sandra Louise Mathis at the scene, he said. She was booked into the Las Colinas Detention Facility on suspicion of murder.
“The preliminary investigation revealed the victim and suspect are related and were involved in some type of argument prior to the assault,” Rorrison said. Several witnesses were being interviewed by homicide detectives.
The victim’s name was not released pending notification of relatives, he said.
