Late Wednesday night a 69-year-old woman was assaulted and stabbed in the neck with a box cutter by the man who had just rear-ended the car the woman was driving. The surprise attack caused the woman to step on the gas to flee and ended up crashing her car headlong into a tree. The car accident happened in the Old Town area of San Diego.
Police described the woman’s injuries as not life-threatening, although the attack was–at the very least–terrifying and unexpected. The man is described as a Hispanic male, 20-30 years of age, 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing approximately 160-180 pounds.
This assault is particularly scary and unnerving. By all accounts, the woman was willing to exchange insurance information with the man, had rolled down her window, and was then stabbed.
