Three men allegedly threatened a pregnant woman and got into a fight with her husband Saturday night in Spring Valley, said Sheriff’s deputies.

It happened at about 6:10 p.m. in the 1000 block of Elkelton Boulevard, San Diego sheriff’s Sgt. Jeremy Sheppard said.

The men aggressively approached the pregnant woman who was walking on a sidewalk with her husband and two-year-old child, Sheppard said.

“The husband went to defend his wife and the fight escalated into the middle of the street,” he said.

One of the accosting men grabbed a drainage cover and used it to hit the husband over the head. During the fight, two of the men were slashed with a sharp instrument, one of them severely, Sheppard said.

The husband suffered head trauma, according to Sheppard. He and the two slashed men were taken to a hospital for treatment. The third man was detained for further investigation, Sheppard said.
