A man in his early 20s stabbed two women, 70 and 68, and took their 1988 Cadillac early Thursday in downtown San Diego, police said.
The women had befriended the man at a local casino and offered him a ride to the Gaslamp Quarter.
Once there, he stabbed the women and stole the car and their purses.
The 68-year-old woman was stabbed in the chest, the 70-year-old woman behind the ear. The injuries were not life threatening, police said.
