OB stabbngs Jan 2016The big news coming out of Ocean Beach Wednesday is the big fight that occurred early in the morning at the corner of Brighton and Bacon.

Two of the victims – a man and a woman – and the two suspects – both men – all were stabbed during the altercation that came down around 12:30 a.m. None of the injuries were life-threatening.

Local TV news was all over this incident – ‘another stabbing in Ocean Beach’, with a “trail of blood on the sidewalk”.

Piecing together the different news reports, it appears that 2 women and a guy were walking down the 2100 block of Brighton around 12:30 in the morning when they were approached by 2 guys.

An argument ensued – obviously it grew heated – people were very drunk – knives were drawn and both of the women and both of the suspects were stabbed.

One of the main news threads has the argument between the men, and the 2 women companions intervened. Their male companion was attacked by the 2 suspects.

Police arrived and all 5 involved were detained and questioned. The incident is under investigation.

The 2 women were their 20’s. One of them was stabbed in the hand, the other in the rear. One of the male suspects was stabbed multiple times in his back. And the other male suspect was stabbed.

One news report had him running from the scene. “Police say they were all highly intoxicated.”

Ironically, it appears that the male companion of the women who was initially attacked by the suspects was the only person without stab wounds.

One news report stated that :

One victim was rushed to the hospital where he underwent surgery. Police said two of the victims were intoxicated and unable to provide information on the suspect.

Just another reason for me to stay away from OB after dark.
