A valet at a luxury apartment complex on the beach was arrested Monday night after allegedly stabbing a fellow valet as the two argued about a personal matter, police said.

The stabbing occurred around 10 p.m. in the 1700 block of Ocean Front Walk at the Sea Castle apartment complex. The victim suffered stab wounds in the attack and was transported to a local hospital, said Santa Monica police Sgt. Jay Trisler.

The suspect drove to South Los Angeles, where he was taken into custody at a gas station parking lot at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Figueroa Street, near USC.

The suspect was arrested for attempted murder and his bail was set at $1 million, Trisler said. Officers would not elaborate on what sparked the attack. The name of the suspect was not available at presstime.
