A 25-year-old man was stabbed in his abdomen this morning outside a storage facility in the Midway District, then driven by his mother to a parking lot nearby to meet with police and paramedics.
Dispatchers received a call about 6:20 a.m. from the victim’s mother, who reported that her son was stabbed outside a storage facility in the 4300 block of Pacific Highway and she had moved him to a parking lot in the 2700 block of Midway Drive, San Diego police Sgt. Matthew Botkin said.
Police responded to the parking lot and found the 25-year-old man suffering from at least one stab wound to his abdomen.
He was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries, which were not believed to be life-threatening, Officer Scott Lockwood said.
The victim’s mother was also taken to a hospital when she was reported to be suffering a panic attack, the San Diego Union-Tribune said.
Officers searching near the 4300 block of Pacific Highway located a male suspect and detained him for questioning, Botkin said.
Detectives with the San Diego Police Department’s western division were investigating the circumstances leading up to the stabbing.
