CONCORD -- A man stabbed Saturday night inside a Concord bowling alley remained in intensive care Monday but is expected to survive, police said.

The incident happened just before 7 p.m. at the Clayton Valley Bowl at 5300 Clayton Road and appears to be the result of words exchanged between the stab victim and the suspect regarding the victim's wife, Concord police Lt. Robin Heinemann said.

Police did not identify the man arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, because the investigation is ongoing, Heinemann said.

The confrontation played out in the bar of the bowling alley, where the victim took exception to "lewd remarks," by the suspect toward the victim's wife, Heinemann said. When police arrived, the injured man was bleeding from stab wounds near the main entrance of the bowling alley.

The injured man was taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek where he remained Monday, Heinemann said.

The suspect escaped from the alley and returned to his Concord home, Heinemann said. He was arrested there without incident a few hours after the incident.
