BOYLE HEIGHTS -- Detectives are working to identify a suspect that slashed the necks of two men outside of a Que Ricos restaurant Sunday night, said police.
The incident happened at about 9 p.m. outside of the popular Mexican fast food restaurant on Soto Street. The two victims were arguing when the suspect attempted to intervene, said Sgt. Yerkey with LAPD’s Hollenbeck Division.
Only a few moments passed before the suspect became violent, pulling out a sharp object and slashing both the men in the neck, Yerkey said. The suspect fled in a white Chevy Tahoe.
The victims, who police believe to be family members, reported the attack to the police after realizing they sustained minor injuries a few hours after the assault.
The suspect remains at large.
Police told the LA Times that attack is not related to the slashings reported in South L.A.
