A 25-year-old man suspected of stabbing another man and causing non-life-threatening injuries to the victim during a fight at a Pacific Beach hookah lounge was arrested Friday, police said.
A 21-year-old employee of the hookah lounge was attempting to kick out the suspect when the two men got into a verbal argument that escalated into a physical fight, Heims said.
During the fight, the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim two times and cut him once, Heims said.
The victim was transported to a hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, Heims said.
The suspect, identified as 25-year-old Dimone Carter, fled the scene, but was located nearby and arrested shortly after the stabbing, Heims said.
Carter was transported to a hospital for treatment of a cut to one of his hands, but was expected to be booked into jail once medically cleared, Officer Steve Bourasa said.
Detectives were investigating the incident.
