Lompoc police were called to the 100 block of N. "H" Street Wednesday night to reports of the attack.

A witness reportedly told police the victim and suspect had been talking before the suspect attacked the other man and stole his backpack. There were no reports of a fight between the two men.

Thursday afternoon, the suspect, identified as Brian Luzocampo, was arrested at his home along the 300 block of East Lemon Street on suspicion of robbery.
