Police arrested a 41-year-old man on Tuesday for allegedly stabbing another man in the arm in Spring Valley, authorities said.
Sheriff’s deputies were called shortly before 11:45 a.m. to Campo Road near North Bonita Street in the Casa de Oro area regarding a man being stabbed and the suspect running from the scene, said sheriff’s Sgt. James McCurty.
A resident contacted the sheriff’s station and reported seeing a suspicious person near his residence and gave a description that was close to the description of the stabbing suspect, authorities said.
A short time later, deputies located a man investigators believe was involved in the stabbing incident, McCurty said.
The man was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the San Diego County Central Jail. The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening wounds.
