SAN MARCOS —
Gang detectives were called to investigate the stabbing of a teen Monday night near an elementary school and youth facility in San Marcos, authorities said.
The stabbing was reported a little before 10:15 p.m. on Tiger Way — a short road that runs between San Marcos Elementary School and the Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos — near West San Marcos Boulevard, according to San Diego sheriff’s Lt. Mike Krugh.
Details about exactly what led up to the stabbing were not immediately available, but the person or people responsible were apparently vandalizing a white truck with graffiti when they came upon the victim, Krugh said.
A 911 caller told the Sheriff’s Department the victim was 15 years old, according to Krugh. When deputies arrived, they found the victim injured with knife wounds, but the attacker or attackers had fled.
Paramedics took the victim to a hospital for treatment, Krugh said. The extent and severity of the injuries was not immediately known.
Krugh said the incident is possibly gang-related and sheriff’s gang detectives would investigate.
