LAPD Tasers suspect after crowbar attack
The incident began shortly before 5:30 p.m. near Runnymede Street and Jellico Avenue in the Lake Balboa area when a dispute escalated into violence, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The victim was taken to a hospital after he was stabbed and received injuries consistent with being hit by a crowbar, Officer Karen Rayner said.
"He's undergoing intense treatment," she told The Times.
After officers responded, the attacker allegedly failed to obey commands and began fighting with the officers, according to police. He was shot at least once with a Taser.
His name and age were not released. No other details were immediately available.
