Ocean Front Walk Machete Stabbing

Three hospitalized in a fight involving a machete Monday night.   

By Sam Catanzaro

A stabbing occurred Monday night on Ocean Front Walk and Clubhouse Avenue involving multiple victims and a suspect carrying a machete. Three individuals, including the suspect, were transported to the hospital following the incident and all are listed in stable condition.

At 11:10 p.m. on May 21st the Los Angeles Police Department Pacific Division responded to an assault with a deadly weapon in progress involving seven males and females fist-fighting at Ocean Front Walk and Clubhouse Avenue.

“One Suspect was possibly armed with a machete…and had a Rottweiler dog,” states the Watch Commander’s report from that evening. “A Suspect at [the] scene may have [had] a handgun.” 

When officers arrived they found one victim with a laceration to the head and another victim with several stab wounds.

“Victim-1 received a laceration to his brachial artery. Victim-2 received a laceration to his scalp. The suspect also received stab wounds,” a detective working on the case told Yo! Venice. “The suspect caused the fight by striking one of the victims in the head with a machete.” 

Officers soon received information of where the suspect went after the incident. According to the Watch Commander’s report, the police determined the suspect was located a considerable distance away and was found and taken into custody without incident.

“Officers were able to apprehend the suspect a few blocks north without incident. The suspect was bleeding from a possible knife wound and required medical attention,” the detective working on the case told Yo! Venice. 

Despite the fact that the radio call that initially brought officers to the scene stated that there were seven parties involved in the incident, the detective says the LAPD has not been able to verify this.

“It is unclear how many people were involved. We are hearing different stories from the suspect and the victims,” the detective said. “Both the suspect and the victim stated that they did not know each other.” 

If you have any information about this case, contact the LAPD Pacific Division at (310) 482-6334.
