Police arrested a 55-year-old man on suspicion of murder after he tried to stop an altercation between two people on a bus in downtown San Diego Saturday night and the man he was restraining died, police said.

The incident happened at about 8 p.m. in East Village, near the intersection of F and 14th Streets, police said.

Police say the victim, a 28-year-old man, had gotten in an altercation with a female passenger on the bus. Another passenger saw the altercation and “physically intervened” and restrained the victim for several minutes, police said.

While the victim was being restrained, he lost consciousness and went into medical distress.

When police arrived, they found the victim unresponsive and lying on the floor of the bus. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he died.
