October 27, 2021 -- A female teenager was arrested after stabbing a man multiple times in Downtown Santa Monica late Tuesday night, police said.

Officers responded to a radio call reporting an assault with a deadly weapon near the corner of 5th Street and Broadway at around 11:40 p.m., according to police.

"Comments of the call indicated a suspect stabbed a victim and fled the scene," said Lt. Rudy Flores, the Police Department spokesman.

Multiple units and a forensics team were dispatched to the scene and requested medical assistance from the Fire Department, Flores said.

"The victim was alert, although stabbed multiple times, and was able to provide a description of the suspect," he said.

SMPD Officers interviewed multiple witnesses and located a suspect a few blocks away matching the description they provided.

A 17-year-old female juvenile suspect was taken into custody and booked for attempted murder, Flores said. She was transported to a juvenile detention center, pending charges.

The victim was in stable condition Wednesday, Flores said. The suspect and victim did not know each other. Neither was homeless.

Anyone with additional information concerning the incident should call the Criminal Investigations Division at 310-458-8451 or the Santa Monica Department’s Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8427.
