The 10-year-old suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and a suspect was arrested.

A 10-year-old boy was stabbed by a man who first grabbed him around the neck while the child stood outside the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday.

The incident happened around 3:42 p.m. in the area of South Grand Avenue and West 1st Street, said a Los Angeles Police Department representative.

The suspect, who was arrested and described by authorities as a homeless man, may have used keys to stab the child. The boy suffered scratches, but no life-threatening injuries, said police.

The incident remains under investigation.
