Police seek man in bizarre road-rage stabbing

Glendale police are stepping up their search for a man wanted in connection with a bizarre road-rage stabbing of a motorist last week.

The victim was released Saturday from a local hospital after having sustained a stab wound that sliced his liver, Glendale Police Det. Keith Soboleski said.

"He is doing OK," Soboleski said. "He is on bed rest."

Detectives on Tuesday released additional details about the attack as they continue to seek the public's help in identifying the suspects who fled from the scene on the 1000 block of Western Avenue after the attack on Thursday.

The incident began on the northbound 5 Freeway and Western Avenue when the victim was cut off by the suspect vehicle, police said.

Both vehicles exited on Western Avenue and then stopped at a red light at the intersection with San Fernando Road, police said.

While waiting at the light, the victim and a woman who was a passenger in the suspect vehicle yelled profanity at each other, Soboleski said.

The light turned green and the suspect vehicle followed the victim along Western Avenue before blocking the victim about 7:30 p.m. near his home.

That's when the victim and the male suspect exited their cars and began yelling, police said.

The male suspect then grabbed a knife, stabbed the man and fled, Soboleski said.

The moral to be learned in this story. . .when some low life scumbag acts like a low life scumbag, don't lower yourself to their level. Be adult, consider the source, and drive away!

The Armenian male is a highly misunderstood species in that they carry too much tetstosterone for their own good - this greatly misleads them into horrible deads such as fraud, murder and silly road-rage stabbings.

no descriptions, only a brief mention of 2 suspects one a female and the victim a male. competent media used to note a few details like whether they were armed, maybe a license number or some other description of the suspects like maybe height, weight, age, race and other relevant observations to warn others and possibly get help catching these perp's. or is this just another progressive "change" nobody asked for and has become the norm.

How are we supposed to help police identify these folks when the PC police inside the LA Times refuse to release a description of them?

Sometimes you have to stand your ground. We were in stop and go traffic on the freeway and needed to merge into the fast lane because of closed lanes. 2 gangbangers wouldn't let us over so my husband talked crap to them. They didn't like it so the one in the passenger seat said "I got something for you white boy" and started reaching under the seat like he was going to pull a gun. The idiot... We were close enough to them my husband jumped out and knocked the dude out cold with one punch before he could get what he was reaching for. The guy fell over into the drivers lap and the driver pulled onto the shoulder and took off like the scaredy cats they are. Without their weapons these guys are useless. LOL! With the space open the guy behind them gladly let us over!

Brooke, it sounds like you were LOL all the way home. Next time hubby will jump out again so he can hear you LOL and will end up dead. How did you determine they were gangbangers Brooke? Were they darker than you and driving a less expensive vehicle. Not a BMW or Lexus you and hubby drive. Hubby sounds like an idiot. and you LOL at freeway fisticuffs are his perfect match.
