Youths charged with stabbing man at L.A. County Fair

Two youths were charged in connection with a stabbing of a man at the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona late Sunday, police said.

The two minors, who were not identified because of their age, apparently argued with the victim before one of them stabbed him at 10 p.m., according to Pomona Police Lt. Eddie Vazquez.

It was not clear what the fight was about or what was used as a weapon, Vazquez said.

"It doesn’t seem there was any motive or rhyme or reason to it,” he said.

The youths were detained and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, and were being held at Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall, he said.

The victim, who was not identified, was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center where he was recovering and in good condition Monday, Vazquez said.

Vazquez said there have been no other major incidents at the fair since it began Saturday.
