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.
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."
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.
