Man arrested after a stabbing on Greyhound bus near UCSD

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A fight between two passengers on a Greyhound bus traveling along Interstate 5 in the University City area escalated Wednesday into a stabbing that left one of the men wounded and the other under arrest, authorities reported.

The pair of transit riders began arguing on the Oceanside-bound transit coach for unknown reasons shortly before 12:30 p.m., according to San Diego police.

As the bus approached Genesee Avenue, the quarrel became violent, prompting the driver to pull over onto the right-hand shoulder, SDPD public- affairs Officer Billy Hernandez said.

After pulling to a stop, the driver was able to separate the combatants and push one of them out the door, Hernandez said. That man then ran off up a hillside embankment into the eastern reaches of the UC San Diego campus, he said.

Medics took the other man to nearby Scripps Memorial Hospital for treatment serious but non-life-threatening stab wounds, including at least one to the neck. The 27-year-old victim's name was not released.

A short time later, police arrested the suspected assailant, identified as 35-year-old Gilbert Dominguez, near UC San Diego Thornton Hospital.

As of late afternoon, the far right-hand northbound lane of the freeway remained closed in the area with the bus still parked alongside it as investigators continued to gather evidence, the CHP reported.
