A man was stabbed to death in Koreatown on Wednesday morning after police said he tried to intervene in an argument between a man and woman.
Los Angeles police responded to 3rd Street and Serrano Avenue about 3 a.m. and found a man bleeding from a stab wound, said Officer Norma Eisenman. Investigators believe the victim interceded in an argument between a man and woman when the man pulled out a knife and attacked.
Authorities initially described the two people arguing as a couple, but there have been conflicting reports on the nature of their relationship, Eisenman said.
The stabbing victim was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The man who stabbed him ran off and has not been found. The woman was uninjured, Eisenman said.
