Three Stabbed Near Pier

By Lookout Staff

August 3 -- A man and two woman, all of them black, were stabbed on the beach north of the Santa Monica Pier early Thursday morning in what appears to be a gang-related racial fight, according to police.

Four suspects -- all of them Latino women -- are wanted in the stabbing incident that took place when two groups clashed on the 1500 block of the Santa Monica Beach at approximately 1:30 a.m.

“Prior to the assault, one of the suspects yelled what is thought to be the name of street gang before stabbing a 29-year old female from Los Angeles,” said Lt. Alex Padilla, the Police Department spokesman.

During the fight, two other adult victims -- a male and female also from Los Angeles -- sustained stab wounds to their extremities, police said.

All three victims were transported to a local hospital, where they were treated, according to police.

Two of the victims were quickly released, while the third underwent surgery for a stab wound to the chest, police said.

“At this time, this victim is in serious condition and expected to fully recover from her injuries,” Padilla said.

The suspects are described Hispanic females between the ages of 17 and 20. Three of them have black hair and brown eyes.

The first suspect is 5’ tall and weighs 130 pounds. She was wearing a white shirt and jeans.

The second suspect is 5’1”, 135 pounds and was wearing a burgundy sweatshirt.

While the third suspect is 5’1”, 100 pounds and was wearing a white tube-top blouse, blue jeans and blue LA Dodgers jacket.

No further description was provided for the fourth except that she is “short in stature.”

A red Toyota and a gray colored vehicle were seen leaving the area shortly after the assault, Padilla said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone having information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Robbery/Homicide Division of the Santa Monica Police Department at 310.458.8451 or the Watch Commander’s Office at 310.458.8427.
