Man suffers severe cut to hand in downtown San Diego attack

Police used a tourniquet on the arm of a badly injured man Wednesday night in downtown San Diego after he reported that he was attacked with a knife, an officer said.

It happened just after 10 p.m. on Sixth Avenue near A Street, outside PATH San Diego’s Connections Housing, a homelessness services facility, according to Officer Darius Jamsetjee.

Police arrived quickly to find the 51-year-old victim “heavily bleeding” from a “severe laceration” or slash wound to his hand, Jamsetjee said. Officers applied the tourniquet and rendered aid until medics arrived.

Radio traffic indicated medics later took the man to a hospital.

Police were looking for a man and woman who left the area in a black Honda, Jamsetjee said, but only a vague description of the pair was immediately available.
