Six struck as suspect flees scene of domestic violence

On 10/31/21 at approximately 2:43 a.m., officers responded to the 1300 block of Orange Avenue regarding an unknown trouble call, later determined to be an assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence.

The preliminary investigation indicates the incident began as a domestic violence incident between a male adult and a female adult. This escalated when the male adult suspect drove a silver sedan onto the sidewalk, striking the female victim and several other people before fleeing the scene.

Five adults and one juvenile were transported by Long Beach Fire to local hospitals where they are listed in stable condition.

The suspect vehicle was last seen fleeing northbound on Orange Avenue.

Domestic Violence and Collision Investigations detectives responded to the scene.

After an extensive investigation, LBPD officers and detectives were able to locate and safely arrest the suspect without incident in the City of Compton.

Detectives also located and impounded the vehicle believed to have been driven by the suspect during the assault.

The suspect was transported to a local hospital for injuries that were unrelated to his arrest.

After receiving medical clearance, detectives arrested Richard Dalton Irigoyen, a 27-year-old resident of Long Beach, who was transported to the Long Beach City Jail and booked for 6 counts of attempted murder, 6 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and 1 count of felony domestic violence.
