The best news report I found is -
The assailant employed a knife or similarly sharp tool during the
assault and escaped from the scene before authorities' arrival. The
victim luckily sustained non-critical injuries and is undergoing

SJPD is working on multiple fronts to assure community safety. It
plans to increase foot patrolling in the area and conduct systematic
