Raiders-Chargers game marred by stabbing, 2 assaults


The Thursday night game between the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego was marred by violence, with one man stabbed and at least two other fights reported.

The violence comes after similar problems occurred at a Raiders-San Francisco 49ers game at Candlestick Park.

A 26-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach in a fight in the parking lot of Qualcomm. The victim refused to describe his assailant or explain the reason for the fight, police said. He was taken to a local hospital with wounds that police said were not life threatening.

Inside the stadium, 68,000 fans watched the Raiders beat the Chargers, 24-17, the fourth straight loss for the Chargers.
