SAN DIEGO - Six people were stabbed early Sunday in San Ysidro at a parking lot just north of the U.S.-Mexico border, and the suspected assailant was later arrested.

One victim sustained a life-threatening stab wound to the chest, and the other five were cut in various parts of their bodies, Rose said. All six wounded people were taken to hospitals, Rose said.

The suspect was later arrested, according to Rose. His name was not immediately released.
