Welcome to the LBPD Blotter!
As part of our ongoing commitment to external communications and providing valuable information to our community, the Department will begin posting information about recent police activity, ongoing investigations, and other LBPD updates to the Department’s homepage and on the “News” tab of the Department’s website.
At approximately 10:00 a.m. each day, community members will be able to read preliminary information about incidents that may have occurred the previous evening, including shootings, stabbings, traffic fatality, and murder investigations, as well as any other notable incidents. This page will be a resource for the public to learn more about enforcement efforts, arrests, and commendable events and will be updated as new incidents occur.
Here’s a recap of incidents occurring last night:
Officers investigate a nonfatal stabbing - Last night, at approximately 9:35 p.m., officers responded to the 5900 block of East Spring Street regarding a report of a stabbing. Upon arrival, officers contacted a male adult victim suffering from stab wounds to the upper body. The victim stated he was near the area when he entered into a verbal dispute with a male adult suspect that escalated to the stabbing. The suspect fled the scene prior to officers' arrival. The Long Beach Fire Department responded to the scene and transported the victim to a local hospital with non-life-threatening stab wounds. The investigation is ongoing
