A woman was arrested on suspicion of stabbing another woman after the two got into a dispute outside a supportive-housing complex in West Long Beach Friday morning, according to police.

Police said the altercation happened around 10:30 a.m. in the 2200 block of San Gabriel Avenue, which is part of Century Villages at Cabrillo, a campus that offers affordable housing and other services to homeless veterans and others in need. A representative of Century Villages said the dispute happened in an area just outside the complex.

It wasn’t clear why the two women got into a dispute, but one of them ended up stabbing the other with a knife, Long Beach police spokesman Ben Hearst said. Police originally said the women are neighbors, but a Century Villages spokesperson said that is not the case.

“The incident that took place the morning of Nov. 16 is concerning, and we are doing all that we can to provide supportive recovery for the victim, a teen, residing here at the Villages,” Century Villages at Cabrillo Executive Director Steve Colman said. “The young woman who was arrested was not a resident of CVC. To the best of our knowledge, this incident took place outside of the Villages community, and we are working closely with the victim’s family to provide her with support during this time.”

First-responders took both women to the hospital after the altercation, according to Hearst. Neither of them had life-threatening injuries.

Police said they still investigating.
