REDONDO BEACH (CBSLA) — A transient is in custody Tuesday on suspicion of stabbing a man on bus in Redondo Beach.
A man was reported stabbed at about 7:30 p.m. Monday while riding on a Beach Cities Transit bus in Redondo Beach. Officers responding to the scene found a man who had been stabbed in the upper torso.
The victim underwent surgery and police say he is now stable at a local hospital.
Another passenger on the bus and the driver were not injured.
Richard John Reynierse, 44, a transient, was arrested about an hour later, a few miles away, after a security guard on a break heard a description broadcast on a police scanner and reported the man to police.
The attack is believed to have been unprovoked. Police think the weapon was a knife, but it has not yet been found.
