A 30-year-old man was stabbed while standing in front of a San Diego liquor store in City Heights, authorities reported Sunday.

The man was standing in front of the Qwik Korner Liquor store at 39th Street and University Avenue at 10:52 p.m. Saturday, San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims said.

A woman walked up to him and did not say anything but started swinging her arm, stabbing the man in his left arm, Heims said.

The wounded man was taken to a hospital for treatment, he said. The suspect was arrested about a block away from the crime scene.

She was identified as Irmalinda Gonzalez, 37, Heims said.
