A man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a stabbing in the Gaslamp Quarter downtown, police said Sunday.
Matthew Mark Morrow, 26, was arrested after San Diego Police Department officers found him running southbound on Fifth Avenue at 10:36 p.m. Saturday, according to Officer Robert Heims.
Morrow and a 50-year-old man reportedly got into an argument and the suspect walked up to the victim holding a knife and stabbed him several times in the back, Heims said.
The victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive his injuries, the officer said.
Morrow was booked Sunday into the San Diego Central Jail on felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon with bail set at $30,000, according to jail booking records. He will be arraigned on Friday.
Central Division detectives are investigating the incident.
