Disputes over cake, music lead to stabbings at San Diego parties
Disputes over cake and music led to stabbings at two separate parties on Saturday night, according to San Diego police.
In the Fairmont Village neighborhood, a man in his early 20s smeared his girlfriend's face with cake. Both thought it was funny, police said.
"The girlfriend's brother, a male in his mid-20s, did not think it was funny," according to the police report. "He took out a knife and stabbed the boyfriend and two other males attending the party."
The three victims were treated at a trauma center for wounds to their backs, hands and abdomens. Their alleged attacker fled and is being sought by police.
At a family party in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, a 44-year-old man and a 23-year-old man had a dispute about music, police said. The older man stabbed the younger man in the shoulder, police said.
Other party-goers held the 44-year-old man down until police arrived. He was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and booked into county jail; the younger man was treated at a trauma center.
