    Two men were stabbed when a heated group argument turned into a violent brawl in the Core-Columbia neighborhood early morning Sunday, according to San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims.

    Larry Simpson, age 57, is suspected of pulling out a knife or a box cutter and slashing one victim across the forehead three times, said Heims. Then he sliced a second victim on his right arm. 

    After the attack, the suspect tried to flee but was caught soon after, said Heims. Police were able to apprehend him in an apartment complex on 9th Avenue and F Street at about 2:40 a.m.

    Both of the men who were stabbed were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, said Heims. An investigation is underway from the San Diego Police Central Division Detectives.

    If anyone has information related to the incident, they can call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
