Several people were involved in a fight shortly after 11 p.m. on Sunday evening, July 26, near the Hillcrest Medical Center north of Washington Street.

According to a resident who had just gone to bed, one of the people involved repeatedly shouted at another person, “Where do you want it [expletive deleted]?”

The commotion of a San Diego police helicopter and at least one unit arriving on the scene followed. The helicopter helped apprehend two suspects. An ambulance arrived.

San Diego police media services manager Monica Muñoz said three or four people were involved in a fight on Third Avenue. One person was taken to the hospital. No other information was offered.

Neighbors say that homeless people regularly congregate at the medical center after it closes and usually spend the night in front of the building.

At least one UCSD Medical Center Hillcrest employee, that I am aware of, has been assaulted right infront of the medical center.

Many time I have encountered people sleeping in the hospital lobby, taking bird baths in the hospital restrooms. If I had no where to go, I would probably do the same. Don't you think?

The employee parking structure is located in the canyon that the homeless camp-out in. I frequently walk by a questionable gentleman on my way to my car in the afternoons.

Rumour has it that an employee was met by a transient, with a knife, in the employee parking structure elevator.

Just a one of the many perils of big city living.
