Los Angeles police on Saturday stabbed a woman in an apartment complex in Baldwin Hills on Thursday.
Officers were called to the 4000 block on Buckingham Road, near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, at around 1:29 p.m., said Tony Im, Los Angeles police officer.
The neighborhood is still tense with many unanswered questions after a 69-year-old woman was found stabbed to death in her apartment.
The woman’s caretaker found her body on Thursday afternoon, the LAPD said.
Neighbors say the apartment complex is a secured building with restricted access.
“This building is for sure all the elderly, you have to buzz in, I’ve never seen anyone go in without someone coming in,” said Dzhane Parker, a neighbor.
As the investigation got into the evening, neighbors showed up asking questions and worrying for their own safety.
“I was so concerned because I’ve seen the officers here all day,” said Parker.
The LAPD announced that there is currently no danger to the public.
The officers arrested a man on Saturday morning despite not saying what his connection to the woman was.
The woman was identified as Bonny Dodd by the LA County Medical Examiner.
She lived alone in the building, which made some neighbors fear that she would be an easy target.
“It’s heartbreaking, sad, uncomfortable. This is my neighborhood and I want to feel safe, but it’s been busy since the pandemic, ”said Parker.
No information is available about the background to the incident.
The South Bureau Homicide is investigating this case.
