GLASSELL PARK — A man was stabbed in the back while walking his dog late Thursday night in Glassell Park.
The victim was walking his dog near Chapman Street and Estara Avenue at about midnight when he was approached by two men. One of the suspects walked up from behind and stabbed him in the upper left shoulder. The two suspects then fled, said Lt. Richard Parks of the LAPD’s Northeast Division.
The victim was taken to L.A. County-USC Medical Center, where he received treatment for his injury, which was not life threatening.
The victim did not get a good description of the suspects, said Parks. “No conversation took place between the suspects and the victim. They stabbed him in the back and fled.”
Officers do not know if the incident was gang related.
