Stabbing at Arcadia mall may be gang-related
An 18-year-old man was stabbed Friday in a indoor courtyard at the crowded Westfield Santa Anita Shopping Center, Arcadia police said.
The incident occurred at 5:45 p.m. and involved several young men; it was being investigated as possibly gang-related, said Sgt. Dan Crowther of the Arcadia Police Department.
One of the suspected attackers was in custody and police expect to make additional arrests, Crowther said.
The victim was taken to an area hospital with an abdominal wound that did not appear to be life-threatening, the sergeant said.
The identities of the victim and the suspect were not released because the investigation is ongoing.
