A 25-year-old man took an unusual step to escape two men who assaulted him Monday night, police said.
He jumped through the window of his own house.
The incident occurred shortly after 9 p.m. Monday, Lt. James Espinoza said. The victim was confronted by two men as he was walking in the area of 26th and Poplar.
A 32-year-old man brandished a crude cutting instrument and cut the victim on the hand. The victim was able to get away from the pair and ran to his house in the 2700 block of North Poplar.

“He dove through the front window of his home” to get away from the attackers, Espinoza said.
While that allowed him to escape the two men, it also resulted in numerous lacerations on his face and arm because of broken glass. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
“It’s unclear what the disturbance was about,” Espinoza said.
Police are looking for the two suspects. The second man is 28, Espinoza said.
