The stabbing occurred about 2 a.m. in the lot of a car wash near the corner of Cimarron Street and Manchester Avenue, said Sgt. Rudy Alaniz of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The assailant left the car wash and barricaded himself in his home on Cimarron Street, Alaniz said. A special weapons and tactics team assembled outside his home and, after nearby residents were evacuated, launched a projectile at the house, smashing a window, Alaniz said. The man then emerged from the home and was arrested. He was booked on suspicion of attempted homicide.

The stabbing victim suffered multiple wounds to the body and neck and was hospitalized in stable condition, Alaniz said.

Detectives were trying to determine a motive for the stabbing.
