A 36-year-old man was hospitalized Thursday after he was stabbed once in the back by another man in the Jamacha-Lomita area, police said.
The victim showed up at a local hospital around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday with one stab wound to his back, San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims said.
Few details were immediately available, but the 36-year-old man told officers he was stabbed by another man in the 7400 block of Lisbon Street, Heims said.
The victim underwent surgery for the wound, which was not believed to be life-threatening, the officer said.
The suspect was described as a 5-foot-8 Hispanic man who weighs around 150 pounds, has a light complexion, short black hair and brown eyes.
Officers from the San Diego Police Department’s southeastern division were investigating the circumstances leading up to the stabbing.
