A suspect was arrested following a stabbing in the Historic South-Central neighborhood of South Los Angeles Wednesday, officials said.

Authorities asked for two ambulances to be sent to the scene after the incident was reported around 11:30 a.m., said L.A. Police Officer Tony Im.

Video from the scene showed the crime scene was outside a shoe supplies store at 4256 S. Broadway.
