Police Wednesday are investigating a fight that broke out between three people, with one losing a finger, in the Bankers Hill neighborhood.
The fight broke out for unknown reasons after a 31-year-old man was approached by two other men in their 30s in front of a convenience store near the corner of Spruce Street and 5th Avenue around 5 p.m. Tuesday, according to the San Diego Police Department.
During the fight, a knife was pulled and the 31-year-old victim’s pinky finger was severed from his hand. The victim was taken to a hospital.
The suspects were last seen on Spruce Street. Two suspects were later detained by police, but released after viewing surveillance footage.
