San Diego man tells police he was stabbed by suspects in clown costumes


A man stabbed multiple times Friday night in a neighborhood near San Diego State University told police he was attacked by four people dressed up as clowns.

The man, who police did not identify, said he got into an argument with someone as he was riding his skateboard in the neighborhood, police said. When he was about to leave, the group in clown costumes attacked him, authorities said.

The man showed up at a local hospital with gashes to his left cheek and the back of his right shoulder and two cuts to his lower abdomen, police said.


None of the wounds are life-threatening.

The man did not provide any further details about the stabbing or the suspects, police said.

The investigation is continuing.
