Man stabbed at party in Whittier

WHITTIER — A young man is expected to survive after he was stabbed in the torso and face during a fight at a party early Sunday, authorities said.
The incident occurred about 1:30 a.m. at a pool party at a house on Deveron Drive, near Ben Alder Avenue, Whittier police Sgt. Terry McAllister said.
The attacker was described as a Latino, between 17 and 23 years old, about 5 feet 4 inches tall and about 120 pounds, the sergeant said.
He apparently became angry when he believed another young man at the party was staring at his girlfriend and punched him, McAllister said.
As friends of the man who was punched came to his aid, the attacker struck one of the friends in the head with a beer bottle, he said.
As the partygoers tried to force the violent guest out of the home, he stabbed a third young man, 20, in the face and torso about four times before fleeing with his pregnant girlfriend. The weapon may have been a broken beer bottle.
The suspect was not in custody Friday, but McAllister said he believed an arrest was imminent.
