Altercation Leads to Stabbing

Arcadia Officers were called to the Westfield Santa Anita Shopping Center, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, on Sunday night at about 11:30 PM on the report of a fight involving several male subjects. Two of the subjects involved in the fight had sustained injuries and were still at the location when officers arrived. Several other subjects were detained in the area who were believed to also be involved. After interviewing witnesses and the subjects involved, it appears that the two victims became involved in a verbal altercation with a group of other males in the parking lot southeast of the mall. The argument became physical and at some point, one of the suspects pulled out a knife, stabbing one of the victims. That victim suffered knife wounds to his face and torso and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The other victim suffered injury to a hand in the fight but was not transported by paramedics. Ultimately, two male suspects were taken into custody and booked on assault with deadly weapon charges at APD.
