Long Beach, Calif. One homeless man was stabbed to death in Long Beach while another was thought to be homeless, authorities said in October.
Long Beach police said the stabbing occurred near Linden Avenue and Harding Street at 2:10 p.m. Saturday.
Incoming officers found several people trying to help a man with a stab wound to the upper part of his body near a grassy area behind an apartment complex. Officers did CPR on the victim until paramedics from the Long Beach Fire Department arrived and pronounced him dead at the scene.
He was later identified as 46-year-old Ausage Sauta.
Homicide detectives learned through their initial investigation that Sauta approached a man sitting under a tree near the junction of Atlantic Avenue and Harding Street, and that two men were involved in a fight, which led to a stabbing.
The man, identified as a weak, middle-aged man, escaped and was last seen walking north on Atlantic Avenue, police said. Detectives said they believed the men knew each other.
Anyone with information was requested to contact Homicide Detective Ethan Shearer or Michael Hutchinson at Crime Stoppers at 562-570-7244 or 800-222-TIPS (8477).
