SAN DIEGO — A Lyft driver was arrested in the Linda Vista area of San Diego after police say he stabbed one of his passengers following an argument early Sunday morning.

According to police, Ali Kendirli, 33, was arrested on the 6100 block of Caminito Del Oeste in San Diego at 1:16 a.m. after the stabbing.

Police said an argument broke out after the three passengers in the vehicle couldn’t give a drop-off location.

At one point during the argument, the driver stopped his car and demanded that all the passengers get out.

The argument continued before Kendirli stabbed one of the passengers in the chest one time. The 27-year-old victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said Kendirli stayed at the scene, where he was later arrested.
