A predawn stabbing in a neighborhood just east of San Diego Bay left a 69-year-old man dead Monday and a woman under arrest on suspicion of murdering him.

The fatal assault at 45 E. 26th St. in National City was reported about 3:45 a.m., according to police.

Patrol personnel arrived at Prestigious Automotive to find a gravely wounded man, Detective Sgt. Vincent Fernando said. The victim, whose name was withheld pending family notification, died at the scene.

Aided by a witness who described seeing the suspected assailant fleeing to the north, officers searched the neighborhood and found the woman, later identified as 40-year-old Samantha June Gordon of Spring Valley, on the grounds of an auto dealership and took her into custody.

Police did not release a suspected motive for the stabbing or disclose the relationship, if any, between the suspect and victim.
