A man armed with some sort of cutting tool attacked a 17-year-old girl from behind Tuesday in an apparently random assault at a South Bay bus stop, seriously injuring her, authorities said.

The unidentified assailant, described as a 50- to 60-year-old bearded man in a dark sweater, attacked the teen near the intersection of Broadway and H Street in Chula Vista shortly after 8 a.m., according to the Chula Vista Police Department.

Following the assault, the man walked off to the south. Paramedics took the victim to a hospital for treatment of severe but apparently non-life- threatening wounds.

The assailant was carrying a knife or similar cutting instrument, but it was not immediately clear if he used it against the girl during the seemingly unprovoked assault, police said.
