Police investigate double stabbing in Historic Filipinotown

November 19, 2011 | 12:37 pm

Police on Saturday were continuing to investigate the stabbing of two men, one of whom died, in Historic Filipinotown.

Officers received simultaneous calls about 8 p.m. Friday for stabbing victims at the 2400 block of Temple Street and the adjacent 400 block of Coronado Terrace, said Officer Rosario Herrera.

They discovered a victim on each block, each with multiple stab wounds to his torso. They believe the attacks are related, Herrera said. The man on Coronado Terrace died from his wounds; the other victim is in stable condition at a local hospital, Herrera said. Their names were not immediately available.

Police had no suspect information or motive Saturday, she said.

However, she said, “it does seem that the victims might be gang members.”
