SAN DIEGO – A 57-year-old man was arrested Saturday after slashing two men with a knife during an argument in the Core-Columbia area.

The incident occurred at 2:40 a.m. at the intersection of Ninth Avenue and F Street where four males were arguing, according to San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.

The argument turned physical when the suspect, identified as Larry Simpson, allegedly pulled out a knife or box cutter and slashed two of the men, Heims said.

One man was slashed in the forehead three times and another was slashed on the right arm, Heims said.

Simpson ran away but was caught a short time later in an apartment complex at that same intersection.

Both victims were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Heims said.
