Another Stabbing Pegged to a Transient, Community Meeting Set for July 17


The Beverly Press has reported that another stabbing has been attributed to a transient.

On June 21, a 27 year old male tourist from Pennsylvania was making a cell phone call in front of a store on Melrose Avenue near Laurel, when a transient rode by on a bike and stabbed the young man in the neck for no apparent reason.

According to LAPD Captain Lillian Carranza, “It doesn’t appear to be a robbery… The guy was bleeding profusely. The business employees called the police and paramedics took him to Cedars. They stabilized him and he is going to recover. It’s fortunate, because it easily could have gone the other way.”

This attack came just three days after a highly publicized incident in which a young woman was stabbed to death at Hollywood and Highland by a mentally ill transient with a long history of violent assaults. As we reported recently, that suspect also worked at the free meal line for transients held every night at the corner of Sycamore Avenue and Romaine Street, near the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and La Brea Avenue.

In response to these violent assaults by mentally ill transients, Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch has scheduled a meeting about public safety for next Wednesday, July 17, at 7:30 pm. The meeting will be held at Blu Jam Cafe, 7371 Melrose Avenue (between Martel and Fuller).

Our area L.A.P.D. Senior Lead Officer Art Gallegos will be at the meeting.
