A stabbing about a block away from Long Beach City College’s Pacific Coast Campus sparked a search for the attacker Monday morning.
The stabbing happened around 10:30 a.m. and left a woman with wounds to her upper body along Pacific Coast Highway just west of Orange Avenue, according to police.
Medics took the woman to the hospital to treat the wounds, which weren’t life-threatening, Long Beach police spokesman Ben Hearst said.
Officers were quickly able to track down a man believed to be the attacker, Hearst said. They took him into custody at a nearby 7-Eleven on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.
Investigators determined the stabbing was prompted by a domestic dispute, police said.
Officers also found a knife, Hearst said. The man’s name wasn’t immediately available.
