    A man accused in a brutal stabbing attack on a Greyhound bus traveling through San Diego County had a warrant out for his arrest at the time of the assault, NBC 7 has learned.

    Gilbert Dominguez, 35, was expected to be arraigned Friday on a charge of first-degree murder.

    He's accused of stabbing a fellow passenger multiple times aboard a bus traveling from San Ysidro to Oceanside. 

    The driver of the bus attempted to intervene in the attack and pulled over to the side of Interstate 5 near Nobel Drive.

    The victim was stabbed several times in the neck, in what SDPD Lt. Kevin Mayer described was an altercation between two passengers.

    The 27-year-old man was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital, according to a spokesperson for the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

    At the time of his arrest Wednesday, Dominguez was wanted on a warrant according to police. No details were released regarding the reason behind the warrant.
