Long Beach police are investigating two separate stabbings that took place Thursday night and Friday morning.
Police are still investigating but so far don’t have any information on a motive or further description of the attacker.
Patrons of some Downtown Long Beach restaurants were shocked when a homeless man erupted into screams Monday afternoon and ran down the street with a bloodied back, apparently stabbed in front of the Chase Bank on Pine Avenue and Third Street.
The victim and suspect knew each other, police said.
Officials said the two men are known to each other. The suspect fled before police arrived to the scene.
The man was found fatally stabbed in his Alamitos Beach home on the evening of April 6 after a verbal dispute, officials said at the time.
A preliminary investigation found the stabbing happened in an apartment complex located in the 300 block of East Esther Street.
One incident took place late Saturday night while the other was reported early Sunday morning.
The victim, a man, was in stable condition when he told officers he was stabbed near Chestnut Avenue and 5th Street.
The victim, 31-year-old Leandro Maza, was visiting Long Beach with his father and fiance from Mar del Plata, Argentina.
