A man in Long Beach was assaulted Saturday, then stabbed during an attack that began in a vehicle and continued when he fled and was stabbed by another suspect, authorities said.
“The victim stated he was an occupant in a vehicle when a female adult suspect that was also in the vehicle took his property and battered him,” the Long Beach Police Department said in a statement. “The victim exited the vehicle and was approached by a male adult suspect who stabbed him.”
Officers were dispatched to the location in the area of East Ocean and Long Beach boulevards at about 3 a.m. Saturday regarding a report of a stabbing. Paramedics rushed the victim to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspects fled the scene prior to police arrival. No suspect information was available and the investigation was ongoing.
