A man was arrested Friday after he allegedly grabbed and choked a toddler on a Colina del Sol roadside, authorities reported.
The assailant, whose name was not immediately available, assaulted the girl in the 4300 block of 50th Street about 11:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.
The 4-year-old’s father, who was dropping her off in the mid-city neighborhood to visit her grandmother, was able to fight off the attacker, CBS News 8 reported. A suspected attacker was arrested in the area a short time later.
Medics took the victim to Rady Children’s Hospital, said Officer John Buttle. Her condition was not released.
The motive for the assault was unclear.
