Suspect arrested after three stabbed in Altadena, one critically

Three people were stabbed and a suspect was arrested Thursday night in an Altadena neighborhood.

One of the victims was hospitalized in critical condition. The other two suffered minor wounds, said Ed Pickett of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

He said he did not have information on the names or genders of the victims.

Sgt. Patrick Gadut of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department said detectives were on the scene as of 10 p.m. The triple stabbing was reported about 8:15 p.m. in the 100 block of East Woodbury Avenue.


“There was an argument. I don’t know what the relationship between the people was, or whether they knew each other,” Gadut said. 

The suspect has not been identified.
