On Saturday August 10, 1991 at approximately 12:01 a.m., patrol officers responded to a disturbance call in the 3100 block of K Street in San Diego.  While officers were in route, they were flagged down by a citizen regarding an injured female in the 3000 block of L Street.  Officers discovered a female, later identified as Eva Rondon, suffering from multiple stab wounds.  Paramedics attempted first aid but Rondon died from her injuries. Additional officers responded to the original disturbance on K Street and found another male victim suffering from a stab wound.  The victim was treated at a local trauma center and survived his injuries.

Further investigation revealed Rondon and her male friend were walking west on K Street when they were attacked by three unknown black males. Two of the suspects attacked the male victim; Rondon ran from the scene but was chased down by the third suspect.  The suspect caught up to Rondon and stabbed her multiple times. 

All three suspects are described as young black males, thin builds, wearing mostly black clothing.  The weapon was not recovered.
