Witnesses help lead to arrest of teen suspects in stabbing

Two teen boys were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after stabbing a 24-year-old Los Angeles man late Tuesday in Glendale, police said.

Detectives are investigating whether the boys, whose names weren’t released because the Glendale teens are minors, have any gang affiliation, police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

The youngest boy, 16, was detained Wednesday just after 9 a.m. at Hoover High School in the 600 block of Glenwood Road while a 17-year-old was arrested at his Glendale home, he added.

Few details were available about the stabbing as authorities continued to investigate the scene.

The stabbing was reported about 11:18 p.m. in the intersection of Doran Street and Columbus Avenue, where police discovered the man had been stabbed in the stomach with a knife, Lorenz said.

The injured man was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he remained in stable condition Wednesday.

Several witnesses provided police descriptions of the alleged attackers, who were wearing black-hooded sweatshirts and black pants, he said.

Detectives from the gang units identified two possible suspects, searched their homes and ultimately arrested the boys, Lorenz said.
