A 34-year-old man suffered a stab wound during a fight with another man in a liquor store parking lot in Grant Hill, police said Thursday.
The stabbing was reported at 10:20 p.m. Wednesday at Mullin's Liquor Store at 3011 Imperial Ave., said San Diego police Sgt. Michael Tansey.
The victim struck up a conversation with three women who were seated in a car parked in the lot when their companion confronted him, Tansey said. The argument turned physical and during the fight, the suspect stabbed the victim once.
The suspect got into his vehicle and fled east on Imperial Avenue and the women fled in their vehicle south on 30th Street, Tansey said.
The victim sustained a single stab wound to the lower right abdomen. The wound was not considered life-threatening.
A friend of the victim called police and he was taken to an area hospital for treatment, Tansey said.
The suspect was wearing a black beanie, a gray sweat jacket and gray sweatpants. His vehicle was described as a gold sedan.
