A 53-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of stabbing a 51-year-old old man multiple times in an East Village apartment.
Dispatchers received a call around 3:50 a.m. from a person who reported a stabbing in a room at the Studio Fifteen Apartments, 1475 Imperial Ave., San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros said.
Officers responded to the scene and found the victim in the apartment complex lobby suffering from several stab wounds to his head, neck and arm, Delimitros said.
The 51-year-old man was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries, which were not considered life-threatening, the officer said.
The suspect, a 53-year-old man whose name was not immediately available, was still in the room when officers arrived and was taken into custody without incident, Delimitros said.
The suspect and the victim knew each other, but police did not disclose the exact nature of their relationship.
