A person was stabbed early this morning following an argument on the dance floor of Los Globos in Silver Lake. The victim was in critical condition following the 4:20 a.m. stabbing at the Sunset Boulevard  club, according to a posting on the Rampart Division Facebook page. “Following an altercation on the dance floor, in which two males were escorted out by security, the victim was found lying on the floor suffering from two stab wounds to the abdomen,” according to the posting. An officer at the Rampart Division early this evening said the suspects remain at large but he had no update on the condition of the stabbing victim.

The violence took place after the club launched Disco Thursdays with a free party. “Don’t miss this, plenty of good times ahead,” said the club Facebook page.

Los Globos, which had traditionally catered to a Latino clientele, was purchased by club owner Steve Edelson last year. Since the change in ownership, the nightclub has extended its operations into the early hours, drawing new patrons as well as complaints from neighbors.

Today’s stabbing follows a shooting outside Los Globos last September. In that incident, one patron was shot in the leg as he was leaving the club, police said.
