The young man stabbed in an Ocean Beach alley less than a month ago has died of his wounds today, Monday, March 5th.
Andrew Bazan, 24, was suffered “horrific” wounds when he was stabbed on February 7th. He was found unconscious with his intestines exposed in the alley between Winstons and the Arizona Club, a half block from Newport Avenue.
No one has been arrested for the stabbing, now updated to murder, no doubt. That same evening, a man with a knife was ejected by bouncers from the Sunshine Company. No one has put the two incidents together. Maybe now they will.
Bazan’s wounds were horrific according to Tim Hinds, a spokesperson for the victim’s family, who talked to NBC San Diego. Hinds stated:
“By the time Andrew passed, he was beyond any reasonable quality of life. He didn’t deserve this. Anybody that has any information on this, that can help us to apprehend the person responsible for such a horrific thing, Andrew would want that.”
Hospitalized at UCSD Hillcrest since the night he was discovered, Bazan only had a 50-50 chance, his doctors had told the family. When he passed away this morning, he was surrounded by family.
The case has now been turned over to SDPD homicide detectives.
