University Police arrested a student March 24 after receiving an anonymous report that the student was in possession of two knives, according to a campus safety notification from Chief of Police Fernando Solorzano.

Student James Edward Deguzman, according to the Long Beach Police Department, was said to be seen opening and closing a black knife by a student, making her feel nervous.

The 19-year-old then allegedly pulled out a second knife and had both knives open on his desk in the LA-5 building, according to the crime bulletin.

The reporting party left the classroom to notify University Police. When officers responded, Deguzman was detained for further investigation.

Deguzman was arrested and booked at Long Beach City Jail after exceeding the 2.5 inch blade allowance set forth by California Penal Code 626.10(b).

The university will conduct multiple investigations and determine the steps it will take.

The arrest and subsequent notification came the day after a forum that was organized to address the immediacy of safety notifications after an unrelated knife incident Feb. 25.

“Groups on campus have voiced concerns about safety notifications and the university is refining the process to distribute those notifications,” Solorzano said in the notification. “Please be assured that your safety is a top priority.”
