Morning Stabbing At The Shell Station

by The Editors on August 22, 2008

At a little before 7 AM this morning (August 22, 2008) a man attempted to mug a customer behind the Shell station at the corner of Carlsbad Village Drive and Pio Pico. When the man wouldn’t hand over the wallet a “scuffle” ensued and the man was stabbed three to four times, according to Lt. Kelly Cain of the Carlsbad Police Department.

Surveillance video and witness accounts indicate the stabber is a light-skinned Latino or white man with a mustache. He is in his late 30s to early 40s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs between 180 to 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a long-sleeve blue shirt with an oval logo on it, blue jeans and a light blue Chargers baseball cap, according to police. . . . Officers arrived moments later to find the victim conscious, lying down on the sidewalk and covered in blood. He was flown by a helicopter to a La Jolla hospital. His condition is not know.

That would explain the helicopter that sounded like it was landing on our roof this morning.
