LOS ANGELES – A man suffered multiple stab wounds Saturday afternoon during a fight in downtown Los Angeles, and two suspects were taken into custody.
The stabbing was reported at 1:16 p.m. at Wall Street and Olympic Boulevard, according to Officer Matthew Cruz of the Los Angeles Police Department.
The victim in his mid-50s was found unconscious and not breathing by arriving officers, and was pronounced dead at the scene, Cruz said.
Witnesses identified the victim as the owner of a Santee Alley business.
An investigation at the scene revealed the victim was involved in a “physical altercation” with suspects described as “a male and a female,” the officer said.
“The male suspect produced a knife and stabbed the victim multiple times,” Cruz said.
The two suspects fled the scene on foot but were eventually taken into custody, he said.
