A disagreement turned violent Tuesday afternoon in an unincorporated area of Manteca near the San Joaquin River.

Shortly before 4 p.m., San Joaquin County Sheriff’s deputies received a call about a fight at the 26000 block of Airport Court – located roughly six miles from the Highway 120 Bypass – and that one of the people involved may have been stabbed.

When they arrived they discovered a male victim had a slice wound that was not life threatening. Paramedics treated him on scene.

Those that were believed to have been responsible fled, and according to Sheriff’s spokesman Les Garcia, the investigation is ongoing.

The fight itself took place in the rural houses built on the inside of the levee along the San Joaquin River. Airport Court – located just off of Airport Way where it first bends in South Manteca – serves as a primary access point. Only one house sits on the road itself.

When the San Joaquin River flooded in 1997, and the river rose in subsequent years, all of the homes were under varying levels of water. Much like those built near Turtle Beach, they appear to be stilted – the living quarters are elevated, sitting on top of the garage.
