A 25-year-old man was stabbed in the left forearm after he got into an argument with a man in the Southcrest area, police reported Friday.

The pair got into an argument around 6:35 p.m. Thursday in the north alley of Z Street between 38th and 39th streets, San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims said.

The argument turned violent and the assailant stabbed the 25-year-old man once in the left forearm, Heims said.

The victim was taken to a hospital by his neighbor for treatment of his injuries, which were not believed to be life-threatening, the officer said.

No suspect descriptions were immediately available.

Detectives with the San Diego Police Department’s southeastern division were investigating the stabbing.
