SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man was stabbed in the neck after he was yelled at to stay away from another man's bike in the Mission Valley East neighborhood, the San Diego Police Department said Monday.

The stabbing happened at 10:47 p.m. Sunday at 7700 Hazard Center Drive when a man in his 40s walked up to a Food 4 Less store with a bicycle out front, said SDPD officer John Buttle. A man yelled at the victim to stay away from his bike.
