Officers arrested a man after he attacked his neighbor with some kind of glass object Monday night, according to Long Beach police.

The altercation started with an argument outside a home in North Long Beach, police said. Officers headed to the home in the 6100 block of Cherry Avenue at about 10:20 p.m., LBPD spokesman Alvino Herrera said.

There, they discovered that two men had gotten into an argument that escalated into a fight before one of them tried to leave.

“The victim walked away and the suspect assaulted him with a glass object,” Herrera said. Police weren’t immediately able to say what the object was.

Medics treated the victim at the scene, but he didn’t want to be taken to a hospital, according to Herrera. Officers arrested the attacker who was still there, Herrera said.

Police identified him as Michael Phong, a 38-year-old Long Beach resident. He works as a tattoo artist, according to jail records.

He was booked into jail on suspicion of assault with great bodily injury and held in lieu of $30,000 bail, according to law enforcement.
