Man allegedly stabbed by brother near Glendale Galleria

A 19-year-old Los Angeles man was stabbed twice in his arm, possibly by his brother, on Saturday near the Glendale Galleria, police said.

The man, whose name wasn't released, told police he was jumped at about 8:32 p.m. and stabbed twice in the left arm by two men, but declined to talk about the incident, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.

A witness, however, reported seeing something different.

The witness told police the man was arguing and fighting with his brother inside a van just before officers arrived to the scene. The witness didn't see anyone else in the area of Colorado Boulevard and Columbus Avenue prior to the officers' arrival, police said.

When officers arrived in the area, they found the victim bloodied, shirtless and walking alone near mall's parking structure, Lorenz said. The van was no longer at the scene and police didn't find a knife in the area.

Detectives believe the brothers were fighting and noted that neither of them is cooperating with police or helping them find the alleged attackers, Lorenz said.

The victim was taken to Glendale Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injuries.
