Two suspects in custody in Arcadia mall stabbing

ARCADIA — Two young San Gabriel men were behind bars Saturday in connection with a stabbing at the Westfield Santa Anita Shopping Mall, police said.
Henry Pang and Robert Cam, both 18, were booked on suspicion of attempted murder, Arcadia police Lt. Paul Foley said.
They are suspected of being part of a group five to seven young Asian men and one Asian woman involved in stabbing an 18-year-old Arcadia man during a fight Friday between two groups, police said.
The victim was walking with another young man and woman when the three became involved in an argument with the larger group, Sgt. Dan Crowther said.
The argument turned into a fist fight between the men in the groups, he said, which then escalated to a stabbing.
The victim was stabbed in the abdomen and suffered a cut to his chin, officials said. He was expected to survive.
Pang was arrested shortly after the incident, Foley said, and Cam — who is suspected of wielding the knife — was arrested about 2:30 p.m. Saturday at his San Gabriel home.
Both were being held in lieu of $1 million bail, authorities said, and were due for arraignment Tuesday in Pasadena Superior Court.
