Woman arrested after stabbing another woman in Long Beach, police say



According to police, a dispute between two women became so intense that it spilled into bloodshed Tuesday afternoon as one allegedly stabbed the other.


Details:

Long Beach Police spokesperson Allison Gallager told the Modern Times that officers responded to the 400 block of W. 5th Street at approximately 12:06 p.m. Tuesday concerning a stabbing.

  • The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

  • LBPD officers and our Mental Evaluation Team attempted to communicate with the suspect, Gallager says.

  • 5th Street between Chestnut Avenue and Magnolia Avenue was blocked for hours due to police activity.

  • It's unknown the circumstances that led up to the stabbing or how the suspect and the victim know each other, but a witness overheard two people arguing, and that one person yelled, "I'm gonna murder you."

Update:

The victim refused medical attention and officers arrested 40-year-old Tiffaniee Gray, a resident of Long Beach.

  • Gray was booked for assault with a deadly weapon and resisting a public officer. Her bail is set at $30,000 and the investigation is ongoing.
