A man was stabbed while trying to break up a fight Sunday night around 10 p.m.
Officers were called to San Leandro Hospital, where they found a man with a stab wound to his arm, according to Lt. Jeff Tudor of the San Leandro police.
The victim, a 25-year-old San Leandro resident, told the cops that he saw a man arguing with a woman on the 1000 block of East 14th Street and tried to intervene.
The suspect then stabbed the man in his upper left arm, leaving a small cut, Tudor said.
Officers searched the area where the victim said it all went down, but couldn’t find the suspect, the woman who was involved, or any other evidence. The victim was treated for his injury and released.
The suspect is described as a white male between the ages of 19 and 21 and he was wearing a dark jacket, jeans, and a baseball cap at the time of the crime. The weapon he used was a folding pocket knife. The woman was described as a white female, around 19 or 20 years old, with dirty blonde hair.
Aggravated assault is up by 25 percent this year in San Leandro, compared to year-to-date 2011 totals, according to San Leandro police statistics.
A man was stabbed by a friend with a ice pick earlier this month at his home on Fargo Avenue, and in September, two men were stabbed after parties turned into fights – one on Stoakes Avenue and one on Alvarado Street.
