File this one in the police bladder.

A Mission Terrace man was stabbed with a screwdriver after he scolded a transient for urinating in his neighborhood Friday night, police said.

The incident occurred in a parking lot on Norton Street near Mission Street about 11:15 p.m., Officer Gordon Shyy said. The 50-year-old resident told police he was walking through the parking lot when he saw a man, identified by police as 58-year-old Rodrigo Yunzal, urinating near a parked car and scolded him.

Yunzal allegedly then stormed over to the man and punched him in the face.

The victim said he tried to walk away, but Yunzal allegedly fetched a steering wheel lock and swung it at him, missing. The victim told police he then knocked Yunzal to the ground and at some point was stabbed with the screwdriver.

The wounded neighbor ran home and called police. Responding officers detained Yunzal, who was clutching the steering wheel lock and in possession of the screwdriver, Shyy said.

The victim was not seriously injured. Yunzal was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Shyy said.
